Michigan AG warns Trump to wear a mask to visit Ford plant
Michigan's attorney general is warning President Donald Trump to follow health guidelines and wear a mask during his visit to a Ford manufacturing plant.
"We are just asking that President Trump comply with the law of our state, just as we would make the same request of anyone else in those plants," Dana Nessel, a Democrat, told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day" Thursday.
President Trump announced new guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the public to wear nonmedical masks to help curb the spread of the coronavirus. "The transmission from individuals without symptoms is playing a more significant role in the spread of the virus than previously understood," Trump said. We talked to a respiratory doctor to make sense of the confusing messaging coming from the Trump administration on whether you should wear a mask to protect you from the coronavirus. Feeling confused about whether you should wear a face mask to protect yourself and others from coronavirus?
The World Health Organization clearly states that medical masks should be for healthcare workers, not for the general public.
But some countries don't agree, with several governments telling people they need to wear masks whenever they go out.
Some are advising people to make their own.

Staff at Gdansk Zoo, who wear face masks at work to help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, recently gave 46-year-old Raja a mask to play with.
But instead of covering her face, the orangutan decided to place the mask over her shoulders and wear it on her torso.
Raja, who was born at a zoo in Rostock, Germany, before being moved to Gdansk, shares her cage with a male orangutan named Albert.
