New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that he will institute an executive order requiring New Yorkers to wear masks in public when not “social distancing” to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Residents will have three days to obtain a mask or cloth covering, Cuomo said.

“If you’re gonna be in public and you cannot maintain social distancing then have a mask and put the mask on when you are not in socially distanced places,” Cuomo explained.

A few of the examples of places where there is little to no social distancing Cuomo provided include public transportation, busy intersections, and busy sidewalks.

Cuomo added, “You’re right to go out for a walk in the park… fine, don’t infect me, you don’t have a right to infect me.”

There are currently 202,208 New Yorkers infected with the virus and 10,834 have died.

FL bans puberty blockers, transgender surgery for minors

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
