On Wednesday, news outlets reported that Joe Biden had stated that he believed he had the authority to implement a national mask mandate if elected president. During his CNN town hall last night, Biden clarified this to say that he would have the authority to implement a national mask mandate on federal land.

CBS News’ Major Garret said that Biden’s shifting position on the mask mandate during a “challenging campaign” is a “big mess.” “They’re having problems with it this week in a way that a challenging campaign in this pandemic probably ought not to have.”

On Wednesday, Biden stated he may have the authority to implement a national mask mandate if elected president.

During a CNN town hall on Thursday, Biden clarified his position again.

Serious question here – why is Biden wearing a mask when there is no one within ten feet of him? Wasn’t it social distancing or a mask?

Here are the CDC’s guidelines.

  • CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
  • Masks are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings.
  • Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
  • Masks with exhalation valves or vents should NOT be worn to help prevent the person wearing the mask from spreading COVID-19 to others (source control).
