Good for him.

Joe Biden said he will wear a mask in public, drawing a contrast between President Donald Trump and himself amid the coronavirus pandemic.
On Sunday, the former vice president and current de facto Democratic presidential nominee emphasized one phrase repeatedly: “Follow the science.”
“It’s important to follow the science. Listen to the experts. Do what they tell you,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.” “So If I go out in public — and I haven’t gone to commercial places of late, I haven’t gone to my local church, etc. … My generic point is, you should follow the science.“
I am glad to hear this as I have been quite worried about Biden being exposed to this virus.
Even though he seems healthy his age puts him firmly in the demographic most endangered by exposure.
And besides that if he were to catch it his support might dry up and he might lose the still undecided primary.
Here is just a reminder of who is not taking this guidance very seriously:
Still, Trump clarified this was an optional public health measure. “This is voluntary. I don’t think I’m going to be doing it,” the president told reporters on Friday.
I totally support Trump’s decision to resist wearing any protective coverings and also suggest that he continue interacting with people as often as possible.
At this point I think it would be poetic justice if this virus took him out and am done pretending otherwise.
