By the time you get home this evening, wearing COVID19 masks will be mandated in many circumstances.
“President Biden will sign an order Thursday mandating mask usage in airports and on many planes, trains, ships and intercity buses, the White House said,” according to The Washington Post. [emphasis added]
“The moves are part of a new strategy released Thursday to confront the coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 405,000 people in the United States.
“Airline workers have described the dangerous results of passengers refusing to follow mask requirements issued by airlines. Safety reports filed with the federal government show flight attendants being repeatedly taunted and verbally abused by passengers, including some who called the virus a “political hoax.”…
“Biden’s move marks a clear break from Trump’s handling of masks, although some specifics, including how it might be enforced, remain unclear pending the release of the order. It will require masks “on certain public modes of transportation and at ports of entry to the United States,” according to a White House strategy document released Thursday.” [emphasis added]
