What are we to do with this garbage agency at this point? They failed colossally on their most important task of the pandemic, producing an accurate test for COVID in February as the virus was spreading silently. It was April before they had rethought their position that face masks weren’t helpful in containing community spread. They’ve let themselves be strong-armed by Trump’s cronies into posting dubious guidance, but they’ve also posted questionable items on their own initiative due to simple incompetence.
And now, with people like Anthony Fauci warning in the most dire terms that the country is about to experience a ferocious outbreak, they’re encouraging people who have the virus to rise from their sick beds and go get some face time with their neighbors at the local polling place.
