Have New Mask Mandates Changed The Debate Around Wearing Face Coverings?

JASON WHITMAN / WVXU

Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland have followed Dayton in passing mask mandates. Cincinnati's mandate will go into effect July 9, requiring face coverings inside places of business. But the issue of whether to wear or go without a mask has been the cause of much national debate and divide along party lines, with politicians weighing in as often as health experts.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the debate over masks and the science behind their efficacy is University of San Francisco Distinguished Research Scientist and Masks 4 AllFounder Jeremy Howard.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
