HuffPost Reports: White House Axed USPS Plan To Send 5 Masks To Every American Household: Report
The USPS had plans in April to send every American household 5 face masks, but then a top White House official squashed the idea.
American Oversight, which obtained over 9,000 pages related to the USPS via the Freedom of Information Act, released the documents in late August. One of the records, entitled “U.S. Postal Service to Deliver Face Coverings to Every American Household,” is a draft of a press release indicating that USPS planned to “distribute 560 million reusable cotton face masks on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to every residential delivery point in America, beginning in areas which HHS has identified as experiencing high transmission rates of COVID-19 and to workers providing essential services throughout the nation during this pandemic.”
The draft plan was never finalized due to the White House cutting the plan. The White House was worried this may have created public concern or panic.
We could have prevented the spread of the pandemic from the start, but now it's September and the virus is still infecting thousands of Americans.
