Biden’s Take On Ending Mask Mandates

Democratic governors have begun to end mask restrictions in their states, but Biden said it was “probably premature” yet was still a “tough call” to make.

Praising vaccine availability and distribution, Biden said, “Every day that goes by, children are more protected.”

“The more protection they have, probably you’re going to see less and less requirement to have the masks,” the president added.

Recall that at the end of 2020, Biden promoted a plan for “just” 100 days of masking in the United States.

“Wear your mask for just 100 days,” Biden said in December 2020. “It’s the easiest thing you can do to reduce COVID cases, hospitalizations, and death.”

“Whatever your politics or point of view — mask up for 100 days,” Biden advised Americans at the time. “Once we take office…100 days to make a difference.”

“It’s not a political statement; it’s a patriotic act,” he added.

Evidently, Americans were forced or asked to conceal their identities for more than 100 days.

The CDC once advised everyone to use masks in order to prevent the Omicron variant spreading. Later, they admitted that cloth masks weren’t as effective as N-95 masks at stopping COVID-19 from expanding or contracting.

Biden said during a White House speech in January, “As I’ve said in the last two years: Please wear a mask. It’s not that comfortable. It’s a pain in the neck,”

Biden would add, “I think it is part of your patriotic duty.”
