Biden will require Americans to wear masks

US President-elect Joe Biden has said he will require citizens to wear masks when his administration goes to work.

“Our administration will require masks wherever we can — from federal workers, in federal buildings and when traveling between states, such as on airplanes and trains,” Biden said in a speech in Delaware.

At the same time, the vast majority of rules for wearing masks are established by state or municipal authorities, so the federal government cannot de facto prohibit or require the wearing of masks from all Americans.

The United States has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the world. Over the entire time of the pandemic, more than 19 million Americans have been infected with the coronavirus, of which more than 300 thousand have died.
