Dr. Osterholm. As the chair of the board of health in my county, I have listen to your podcast every week as a way to get real information that I need in order to make decisions for not only our community but also my organization. Time in again, your podcast has provided guidance that I needed in a sea of misinformation. During the recent episode, you were talking about N95 masks for children and how cloth face coverings are just a decoration. That seems so odd to me, and I can tell you that out of all the adults and kids who have worn a face covering in the last two years, very few have warn an N95. And yet in 2020 the rate of flu was so small, and I know that was combined with all the shutting down of the community, but what I hear you saying is that these cloth face coverings are not worth anything. And if that’s all people will wear, then what’s the point? It seems like schools have been able to stay open despite the fact the kids are just wearing a cloth face covering. Are you literally saying that if people won’t wear an N 95, then don’t even worry about masking? I am trying to understand.

Please comment on the EU travel restriction for US residents. Do travel restrictions work?

Thank you for these very informative, honest and factual podcasts. Whilst I am listening from the UK, what you have been saying is relevant to all of us and it's been helpful to cut through the noise of the media. Thank you again.
