This topic is like politics and religion....

A mask is intended to protect other people primarily. If you truly want to protect yourself as close to 100% as possible you would need to do the following.

1. Not only where a mask but also a shield or glasses as the virus can enter your eyes as easily as it can your mouth or nose.

2. Dont get close to people, 6ft sure sounds good.

2. Have inside clothes and outside clothes inclusive of shoes. Carefully take your outside clothes off as soon as you step into your house. Place those clothes in a bag and tie it shut untill you can wash them.

3. Place the soles of your shoes in a solution of Hydrogen Peroxide for at least 2 minutes.

4. Take a shower, washing off with soap from head to toe, put on your inside clothes that never leave the house.

Those steps would keep you relatively safe. The other option is to distance yourself from others so the spray spit while they are talking does not land in your eyes or mouth. Do that and wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water and dont touch your mouth, nose, eyes or any other opening on your body proir to doing so.

If the state health department or the Governor's orders require a mask, you have to wear a mask.
Which resource, Justice or Marsh? I don't to start war here, but evening as a Republican I don't think Justice is a resource.

Also worth noting that Marsh works for WVU, not WVU Medicine, he is a state employee.

Clay Marsh is a great resource for West Virginia, regardless of his employer.

I don't know him personally, but I know a number of people that do. He is very well regarded.

An all class reunion for Charleston High School planned for August has been postponed until next year. He's been mentioned among Charleston High Alumni because he was the President of the student body during his senior year in high school. A leader way back in the 70s. A hometown boy made good.
