Shave it or Catch it

“Men may need to hack off their muttonchops, void their Van Dykes or pluck their ducktails if they plan on using a respirator, according to information from the CDC about how facial hair can interact with the devices”, states New York Post. The CDC is in the process of warning men with facial hair that they need to shave it or their chances of catching the Coronavirus, if exposed, is higher than anyone else’s due to them having facial hair. The issue is that men’s facial hair will interfere with the job that the respirator or face mask’s job. They don’t flat out say, “If you have facial hair, you're gonna die because you can catch it more easily.” But, judging by the panic that has set in you would think that that is what they were insinuating.
