Biden’s pandemic plan: Restore Obamacare, mandatory masks, paid sick leave and free COVID-19 tests – MarketWatch

Push for a national mask mandateSpeaking in his home town of Wilmington, Del. on the campaign trail, Biden vowed to push for more Americans to wear masks. “First, I’ll go to every governor and urge them to mandate mask wearing in their states, and, if they refuse, I’ll go to the mayors and county executives and get local mask requirements in place nationwide,” he said. President Trump has described mask wearing is “politically correct.”Jezek said the IDSA supports this policy. “In August, IDSA began calling for a national mask mandate, as compelling scientific data indicate that masks significantly reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission,” she said. “Further, modeling suggests that near universal masking could prevent 180,000 COVID-19 deaths. We continue to support a national mask mandate.”2. Paid sick leave and caregiving leave
