Facial Armor for the Influenza -- March 19, 2020

Literary Digest, 30-November-1918
Governor Newsom has ordered bars and restaurants to close.  He is urging people to shelter-in-place unless going out is absolutely necessary.  During the Spanish flu pandemic, many people wore masks.  Now they tell us that the masks do not stop us from catching something, but may stop us from giving something to someone else.

The Archdiocese of San Francisco has cancelled all public masses. 

The San Francisco MTA announced that cable cars and the F-Market and Wharves line will be replaced by buses.

Eight Senators voted against the COVID-19 relief package:
Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
Jim Inhofe (R-OK)
James Lankford (R-OK)
Mike Lee (R-UT)
Rand Paul (R-KY)
Ben Sasse (R-NE)
Tim Scott (R-SC)
Ron Johnson (R-WI)
