US President-elect Joe Biden will begin calling governors of all states in the coming days to urge them to enact mandatory mask wearing as the COVID-19 pandemic enters a potentially more deadly phase with the onset of winter. Biden’s senior advisor stated this, transfers NBC News.

He said governors who resist the new president’s pleas will see Biden pressurize city mayors to enact local mandates, potentially setting him up for confrontation with Republican governors.

“If the governor refuses, he will go to the mayors in the states and ask them to introduce [обязательное ношение масок]… In many states, mayors can establish mandates, ”the adviser said.

Biden’s team, according to NBC News, is also considering imposing a requirement to wear masks in federal institutions – a step that the administration of incumbent President Donald Trump did not take even after the head of state himself and a number of his senior officials and aides, including Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, have contracted the coronavirus.
