(RightWing.org) – Americans are tired of being told what to do after a year of changing rules regarding COVID-19. We live in America, and we’re adults. We can make our own decisions regarding what’s best for our own health, right? As it turns out, it’s not always that simple.
A recent research study on the airborne transmission of COVID-19 from a pair of professors at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) flies in the face of the guidelines published by the CDC, which directs people to maintain a minimum distance of six feet from others at all times.
Not your fault, Fauci.
“A new study published by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology says you’re no safer from COVID-19 indoors at 6 feet or 60 feet, challenging social distance policies.”https://t.co/BjHG8PKKD5 #Newsmax via @Newsmax

According to this study, there isn’t a specific distance for people to maintain indoors or outdoors. Instead, officials need to consider several factors, including the size of the room, the number of people, ventilation systems, and a host of other factors.
