New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) announced that he will sign an executive order requiring residents to wear masks indoors and outdoors when social distancing isn't possible.

"If you can't socially distance, [a mask] is going to be required," he said in a Wednesday interview with MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Murphy said a group of people not social distancing could receive a warning but noted that the order will be hard to enforce.

The order comes as other states report staggering surges in coronavirus infections.

"We've gone through hell in New Jersey," Murphy said. "We've lost over 13,000 people. We've brought our numbers way down. We can't go through that hell again."

As more and more data shows covid-19 can be spread in undetectable tiny aerosols that can hang in the air for extended periods, TRUMP actively opposes any attempt to promote the only defense... wearing a mask.

A sane president would not only be promoting mask use, but would be bending heaven and earth to provide all Americans with high quality N-95 masks that are capable of filtering out such small aerosols.

Trump's actions and inactions are literally killing people.

"The order comes as other states report staggering surges in coronavirus infections."

Perhaps you missed that part of the sentence. Apparently NJ is is being pro-active based on surges in the nation because viruses do not respect state borders.

5. My state is doing well,

but a lot of assholes have abandoned their masks. I don't know what will happen if our numbers go up. Despite our Democratic majority in Illinois, republican scum keep suing the governor and slowing down our safety and progress.
