As the science surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, with medical professionals insisting that vaccine recipents continue to wear masks after innoculation and new strains of the virus being discovered almost every week, “experts” are now recommending that citizens wear two masks instead of just one.
A video from Inside Edition has circulated on social media that showcases various experts extolling the virtues of double masking, and insinuates that viewers should double mask to emulate celebrities and politicians.
“President-elect Joe Biden does it, Mitt Romney double-masked during the capitol insurrection, Tom Cruise also double masks,” the narrator intones.
An infectious disease expert then explains that the “electrostatic repulsion” and “then like, different fibers going different ways” make double masking even better than single masking.
You must wear TWO masks now according to ‘experts.’

The New York Times recently published an article titled “One Mask Is Good. would Two Be Better?” “Double masking adds an extra layer of filter, making it even more difficult for the drops of moisture ridden with the virus to get to you or to spread to others,” a clinical associate professor at the Rutgers University School of Nursing said.
The crackdown on those opposed to wearing masks continues to intensify in recent weeks as well.
Over the weekend, popular conservative, anti-mask livestreamer Tim “Baked Alaska” Gionet was arrested by the FBI after participating in a protest at the Capitol on Jan. 6:
Tim Gionet, known online as Baked Alaska, was arrested today for the alleged actions he took while participating in the mostly peaceful Capitol Hill protest on January 6.
Gionet, who has become an ardent Trump supporter since originally supporting Bernie Sanders in 2016, and who appeared at virtually every Stop The Steal event, was arrested today for his alleged participation in the January 6 Capitol Hill protest, continuously called a riot by those in the mainstream media.
According to the Associated Press, Gionet “was arrested by federal agents in Houston on Saturday, according to the official, who was not authorized to discuss the matter before the public release of a criminal complaint and spoke on condition of anonymity.”
It remains to be seen if triple, quadruple, and quintuple masking will become recommended in the future, as the “science” around Covid restrictions continues to evolve.
