Dr. Deborah Birx, a top official on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, advised Minnesotans to wear masks inside their homes during a recent press conference in St. Paul.

“It really does come down to every Minnesotan following these common sense path forward to ensure we protect each other, and really a lot of that pathway goes through wearing this mask not just in public but also in private if we need to protect others in the household,” she told reporters Sunday after a meeting with officials from the Minnesota Department of Health.


In addition to wearing masks inside, Birx said that “everybody should have their mask with them whenever they’re outside.” She later added that “we gain freedom from wearing our masks and social distancing.”

Birx praised the Walz administration for approaching the coronavirus pandemic in a “data-driven way,” claiming that Minnesota’s approach “has really prevented a lot of nursing home residents from getting infected, and that’s extraordinarily good.”
