Never to lose an opportunity to be condescending and blast the “woke” folk, State Representative Randy Fine went to his Twitter account to bash people walking around outside in Washington D.C. wearing masks.
Fine is so anti-woke that he must walk around with his eyes closed not to notice the dense smoke surrounding the entire north east. In fact, the air is so bad from the Canadian wild fires that D.C. is under a Code Purple Air Quality Alert, which recommends people do not even go outside. If they do go outside, they are recommended to wear an N-95 mask to protect themselves. This is the person who is the Chair of the Health and Human Services Committee making decisions about healthcare in Florida.
From the D.C. Mayor website: Smoke from Canadian wildfires is causing unhealthy air quality in the Washington, DC area and the northeast United States, and this problem is likely to continue or worsen through Friday. DC Health and DOEE recommend that residents pay attention to local air quality reports and the US Air Quality Index at airnow.gov.
When the Air Quality Index is above 200 in your area (Code Purple or Maroon), all groups should stay indoors as much as possible. Those who must work outside should reduce work outside if possible, and if not, wear a mask (N95 or KN95 equivalent).
