Let’s Look at President Biden’s Newly Issued Mask Mandate
After taking over the Oval Office, President Biden was locked and loaded to kick his predecessor’s ill-advised policies out of America’s law system for good. To that end, he spared no time to take action against the increase in COVID-19 cases. One of the first steps he took was making masks mandatory in all federal buildings for both employees and contractors, which include courthouses, state capitols, national parks, and monuments.
So if you plan on visiting any one of these places, make sure to have a face mask on.
Latest Update on the Situation
Most of the states were already observing protective measures and encouraging social distancing and face masks, but now that the White House has released an executive order, anyone violating it will find themselves in trouble and may even be subjected to paying a fine or even imprisonment.
President Biden has signed many executive orders during his first days as the POTUS and most of them are reversals of policies made by the Trump Administration. One of these orders includes stopping the USA’s withdrawal from the World Health Organization and Dr. Anthony Fauci’s appointment as the head of the delegation representing the USA in the WHO. He has also created the position of COVID-19 Response Coordinator, whose main job is to report to the President himself and aid in producing and distributing COVID-19 vaccines in the country.
New Rules for Travelers
As for travelers, the President has ordered that all overseas flying to the country, including American citizens, must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of departure before entering into the USA. Travelers are also required to go into quarantine the moment they arrive.
According to CDC guidelines, only 7 days of quarantine would be required of the travelers. Other than that, social distancing must be practiced and face masks must be worn by them at airports, in planes, trains, ferries, intercity buses, and while using any public transport.
The Flight Attendants Union (AFA) requested a mask mandate back in April 2020 but the Trump Administration did not approve it. Now, with the new executive order, travelers will start taking the guidelines more seriously, effectively adding to the prevention and decrease of the spread of COVID-19 in the USA.
