We don't need masks. Now we do need masks. Do you see this as an example of why some people don't trust Science/ the Government?

Perhaps two weeks ago, the CDC recommended - without hesitation or equivocation - that non-health care citizens did not need to wear a face mask unless we were directly caring for a covid-19 infected patient. They are the experts, the scientists, and most of us should hang on every word that they say. . . right? No one in the medical community challenged that advice. By their silence, others made this recommendation unanimous.

Now we are being told that the advice was wrong and that we should wear face masks anytime that we are outside of our home. The explanation for the flip-flop is that there was insufficient data when the earlier recommendation was announced. Well, if there was insufficient data, why did they make a premature recommendation?

Does anyone see this as an example of why some people do not trust the government/science complex when they advise us on public health issues? Does this at least give you some insight into those who are opposed to mandatory vaccinations? Those who are hesitant to blindly accept climate change warnings?
