Biden Urges States To Maintain Mask Mandates As A ‘Patriotic Duty’

President Joe Biden urged leaders across the country Monday to reinstate mask mandates and pause reopening efforts, claiming it’s “the only way we will ever get back to normal.”

“I’m reiterating my call for every governor, mayor, and local leader to maintain and reinstate the mask mandate,” Biden said. “Please, this is not politics. Reinstate the mandate if you let it down.

Biden said mask mandates are the “only way” Americans will be able to attend events like graduations and weddings again.
