Yeah, masks seem to work and their lack of use is part of the American tragedy.   It is not 100% on Trump though; Dr Fauci, the WHO and the CDC discouraged mask use early on too.

Re AC, I came across this the other day:
How can airborne transmission of COVID-19 indoors be minimized?

Apparently many HVAC systems can be regulated as to how much recycled vs fresh are they use.  I am not seeing it get much attention, but a simple requirement to have those systems pump fresh are would be a painless way to make public indoor spaces a little safer.

Estimates of exact prevalence vary, but it seems that roughly 50% of patients diagnosed with Sars-CoV-2 – the virus responsible for causing the illness Covid-19 – have experienced neurological problems.

'Don't be a sheep' says the sheriff talking to a crowd of diabetics and seniors about mask wearing.

>positivity rate

This site does if you drill into the state stats -- the blue beaker icon next the state in the table as you scroll down.

>40-year-old health care worker says she regrets not taking precautions

You think she'd be wise enough to know better.

>widely ignored in California

I am seeing a pretty wide variation from area to area.  My local town is pretty good about masks and the numbers are showing it compared to the neighboring towns.  Overall though the state is doing quite poor, as are most states right now.

I am trying to imagine what life is going to be like when we crack the 10% infected level.

White House halts mandatory temperature checks, symptom screening

Quote
The White House has stopped conducting mandatory temperature checks for all staffers and visitors entering the grounds, removing another layer of safeguards put in place after two officials became ill with the coronavirus last month.

While those who come in close contact with the president and vice president are still having their temperature checked and being questioned about symptoms, the steps are no longer being taken for others who enter the White House campus, said spokesman Judd Deere. Tents that had been manned for the past month by staffers with thermometers were being taken down on Monday.

Good news Doc!

We're eating less meat these days.  It's hard to feel good about consuming factory meat when the workers keep getting sick.
