STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): I read a great survey, and -- they looked at the scientific data in my home state of Kansas. In the month of July, they had a statewide mandate for masks. Now the problem with Kansas was, some counties would actually enforce it and other counties would not. In the counties that enforced the mask mandate, the number of cases of coronavirus actually went way down. And in the counties where they did not enforce the mask mandate, it went way up.


DOOCY: Yeah.

EARHARDT: Huh. You just have to do it smartly and do it safely.

DOOCY: It means -- apparently, masks work.

EARHARDT: -- Work. 4 million U.S. cases in the month of November alone. That's a third of the total number of coronavirus cases in the U.S. since this pandemic began.
