Joe Biden, the 46th head of the state of the United States, is ready to take measures as soon as he takes office as the president of America, to ensure the country’s safety. COVID-19 is on the rise, and the second wave could potentially be more lethal. However, Mr. President has a different idea, to deal with the crisis, and tends to disagree with the health officials’ varied rules regarding the implementation of face-masks.

What Is So Special About Face Covering?

Face masks are essential and a need of the hour. During the first wave of coronavirus pandemic, health care professionals recommended the public to use a KN95 face mask or N95 face mask. A cloth mask can also be productive, but only if they have three layers. According to Joe Biden, any face mask is better than no face-covering.

The face mask acts as a shield that protects the individual from pathogens in your surroundings. We know that the COVID-19 remains suspended in the air, which is why protection is extremely important.

Unfortunately, if one has COVID-19 infection, the virus can spread to others from the individual. Hence, it is their responsibility to protect others from the infection, making the face-covering essential. 

Apart from face masks, washing hands frequently, and using sanitizer, are just as important. Joe Biden seriously expects Americans to follow precautionary measures.

Joe Biden Mask Mandate

Mr. President elaborates on the importance of face masks and social distancing. According to him, to make America a better place for all, every citizen needs to work hard and cooperate by wearing a face mask. Furthermore, every individual must practice social distancing and other precautionary measures.

Mr. President will not compromise on the face-covering mandate, or the protection of the country. He understands the pressure on the healthcare industry currently, and does not intend to worsen it due to lack of simple precautionary measures. Additionally wearing a face mask is the most effective way to prevent inter-human transmission of the COVID-19.

Biden is willing to go to every governor and mayor to urge them to issue face mask mandates, as they are for the safety of the public. According to Joe Biden, before the formulation of an officially approved vaccine, it is essential to follow all precautionary measures. Individuals must wear masks and practice social distancing. Subsequently, quarantine and contact tracing also need to be followed to control COVID-19 pandemics.

Mask Mandate For Some States

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, wants to make mask-wearing mandatory for all across the United States. However, doctors and other health care professionals recommend imposing the implementation of wearing a mask under certain conditions and locations.

Now Joe Biden is eager to mandate a national mask mandate by working with governors and mayors across the U.S.

The majority of states already have a specific face-covering mandate, yet there are some states with no statewide face mask requirements. Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, and Nebraska have no statewide face mask mandate. Additionally, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Wyoming also have no face covering instructions.

However, there are no statewide restrictions or limits regarding the wearing of a face mask. Further, some of the mayors of these states have signed orders to implement the face mask mandate. Still, some of the mayors recommend that wearing a face mask or not must be the decision of the individual. Also, the state must not force them to wear one. Similarly, there will be no prosecution against those who violate the mandate. Anyhow, Joe Biden is keen to make every citizen wear masks.
