Ok Powell - I just read that BULL$HIT story - why was it even written? It said:

**QQ**The Department of Homeland Security has not issued an order saying our employees cannot wear masks.**QQ**

That was a QUOTE - then:

While Kuban said no one has been ordered not to wear masks, a different administration official said earlier that agents at the U.S. border and at airports have been told not to wear surgical masks until they are needed.

The official said the **QQ**science indicates**QQ** no need for the masks at this time.

followed by:

If an employee at (an airport) or (on the border) comes into contact with someone who appears to be ill, it is strongly recommended and encouraged that both of them put on masks and gloves immediately,**QQ** the official continued, adding that **QQ**the safety of employees is of the utmost importance.**QQ**

and then:

Asked why an agent shouldn**Q**t be allowed to wear a mask if it makes him or her more comfortable and doesn**Q**t affect performance, the official said only that **QQ**science indicates**QQ** masks are not needed now.

Talk about flip-flopping!

Added note - the unnecessary characters in the text **QQ** sit there and say, don’t put on the masks until you know someone is sick is absolutely absurd. And it shows that Washington doesn’t understand...**QQ** indicates that this was **Q**cut and pasted**Q** by someone at Fox (it doesn**Q**t say who wrote the article other than **QQ**FOX News**Q** Mike Levine and Erin Vogel contributed to this report.**QQ**) - I wonder where the article originated from?
