"If you could be a little more prudent for 30 more days..."

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) on Sunday urged states not to lift mask mandates yet. During an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” he said, “I don’t like the mask either.”

“I have a saying, ‘One robin doesn’t make spring.’ And you, you know, when the first robins start coming back, if you just react and run out, ‘Oh you know it’s wonderful. It’s spring! It’s spring!’ You’re about to get hit by a winter storm and absolutely get your butt handed to you,” he continued.”

Finally, he said, “We need to be a little more cautious. Nobody likes the mask. But for crying out loud, if you could be a little more prudent for 30 more days, or 45 more days, or whatever it took for us to get on rock solid ground, that’s the approach West Virginia’s going to take.”
