First, it was don’t wear a mask.
Then, it was perhaps you should wear a mask…which, of course, quickly morphed into: you must wear a mask.
Then, following Joe Biden’s example without question, the media suggested we double down and wear not one, but two masks, with Dr. Anthony Fauci saying just this week that “it only makes sense” that a second layer of face diaper would add more protection against germs.
And now, it’s three – or, at least, that’s what CNBC is proposing in a report that actually suggested people don three separate face masks, one atop the other, to improve their likelihood of avoiding COVID exposure.
“Virginia Tech researchers found that doubling up these cloth masks increases the efficacy from 50 to 75 percent. A three-layer mask could block up to 90 percent of the particles," CNBC reported, brought to you by former Fox News host Shepard Smith and host Contessa Brewer.

Yes. Three masks. Which will apparently keep you from inhaling germs by preventing you from getting any air at all.
