The two expert pulmonologists at NYU and Mount Sinai Hospital told Dr. Gomez on Monday that in essence there are basically no medical conditions that should prevent you from wearing a paper mask or cloth face cover, and that includes asthma.

We were going to reserve a private tour for Friday. Just can't imagine a mask in 110 degree weather. So sad.

My family went to global earlier this week, we all wore masks the whole ride, even the 3 year old.

In 3,000 degree weather lol

Does this include on the wagon?
