Clarifying a point

I feel my twitter interaction quoted in the the article published Nov. 12, 2020, “DeWine: Ohio ramping up mask rules,” with the author was misconstrued.

I clearly stated to the author that evidence for mask use was mixed and was my personal opinion only.

I was not speaking for the PA program or Marietta College and never have I told anyone not to wear a mask.

Her article gives appearance I am speaking for the college and telling people not to wear masks.

Both are false.

I was making a point that the science surrounding mask use is mixed. Nothing more nothing less.
