Sen Ted cruiseRafael (Ted) Edward CruzProfiles in Cowardice: Trump’s post-election popularity of the Senate’s Abblers’ Parlor led to misinformation, with Trump telling advisers he could announce a 2024 bid soon after Biden won certification. (R-Texas) called the Democratic senator a “full-ass”, asking that fellow lawmakers wear masks while in the room.

While Cruz argued that Sullivan was about 50 feet from Brown, and therefore did not have to wear a mask, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health authorities recommend that people in public indoor spaces Use face coverings. Regardless of vertical distance.
“This is silly,” Cruz Tweeted Monday night, stating that Brown “is a complete ass. He wears a mask to speak – when no one comes from far away – as a showy sign of fake virtue.”
The CDC recommends that people “wear masks in public settings and when people don’t live in your home.”
It is idiomatic. @SherrodBrown Is a complete donkey. He wears a mask to speak – when no one comes near him from afar – as an unpleasant sign of fake virtue.@DanSullivan_AK Was over 50 feet away, presiding. Last time I checked over 50 feet 6 feet. https://t.co/BoIGrAV7T1

The CDC guidance also states that masks are not a substitute for social distance, and masks must be worn at least six feet apart to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
This is especially important for wearing masks where COVID-19 spreads more easily due to less ventilation, the CDC states.
During the epidemic, Brown has repeatedly asked his colleagues to wear masks in the Chamber.

Wearing masks requires everyone on the floor of the house, not the same requirement in the Senate.
Sullivan said to Brown on the brown floor, “When I’m speaking like most senators, I don’t dress like that. I don’t need your instruction.”
While Cruz argued that Sullivan was at least 50 feet from Brown, the exchange’s video shows that Sullivan was very close to at least one Senate staffer.
The CDC recently updated its guidance to state that masks provide some protection to the wearer, in addition to helping prevent others who do not know they are ill from spreading the virus.
The CDC states that COVID-19 is mostly transmitted through close contact via respiratory droplets through sneezing, coughing, or talking by an infected person.
But the agency recently acknowledged that it is possible for the virus to spread through small particles over six feet that remain in the air for minutes or hours and increase in number with speech volume.
