Three weeks ago, the U.S. Surgeon General urged people to wear face coverings to help slow the spread of coronavirus and allow citizens to slowly move out of quarantine. Since then, the concept of wearing face masks has been controversial. Many citizens feel that they should only have to wear face masks if they want to. Some also argue that they are unable to wear facial coverings for various health reasons.

So far, various research has proven that face masks are one way to help slow the spread of coronavirus. As well, many government mandates and stores are now requiring individuals to wear face masks when out in public. Nevertheless, some are arguing on if the government can legally require someone to wear a mask.

Last week, Donald Trump said that he’s “all for masks” in a statement. However, he later stated that there shouldn’t be a nationwide mandate for citizens to wear them while outdoors.

Now, Stanley is making his stance on face masks known. On July 6, he told followers to not listen to “conspiracy theorists” who believe masks do not protect individuals amid the pandemic. He also posted a photo of him and his daughter Emily wearing protective face masks.

“Sunset at the beach with Emily,” he tweets. “WEAR YOUR MASK! Don’t listen to conspiracy theorists or graduates of The Internet University Of Medicine. While the credible authorities and experts continue to learn more about Covid 19 they remain in agreement about safety protocols. End of story.”

On July 5, Stanley gave his condolences to Canadian actor Nick Cordero’s family. Cordero died at the age of 41 after battling complications from coronavirus. The actor first tested positive for COVID-19 back in March and was soon hospitalized. His wife Amanda Kloots originally shared the news of his passing.

“What a tragedy,” Stanley says. “No more pain. No more suffering for him but for his wife and child it now continues. My condolences and prayers for them. Let’s all do what we can to help stop the spread of a disease that knows no age boundaries and WEAR A MASK.”
