National Mask Mandate on the Biden-Harris Agenda

The Biden-Harris Transition announced the formation of the Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board, a team of leading public health experts who will advise President-elect Biden, Vice President-elect Harris, and the Transition’s COVID-19 staff. The Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board will be led by co-chairs Dr. David Kessler, Dr. Vivek Murthy, and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith. Dr. Beth Cameron and Dr. Rebecca Katz are serving as advisors to the Transition on COVID-19 and will work closely with the Advisory Board.

“Dealing with the coronavirus pandemic is one of the most important battles our administration will face, and I will be informed by science and by experts,” said  Joe Biden. “The advisory board will help shape my approach to managing the surge in reported infections; ensuring vaccines are safe, effective, and distributed efficiently, equitably, and free; and protecting at-risk populations.”

The Biden-Harris team also communicated some priority agenda items coming into the Whitehouse in January. The top list items include:

  • COVID-19
  • Economic Recovery
  • Racial Equity
  • Climate Change

Implement mask mandates nationwide by working with governors and mayors and by asking the American people to do what they do best: step up in a time of crisis,” said the transition team website.

The statement continued, “Experts agree that tens of thousands of lives can be saved if Americans wear masks. President-elect Biden will continue to call on:

  • Every American to wear a mask when they are around people outside their household.
  • Every Governor to make that mandatory in their state.
  • Local authorities to also make it mandatory to buttress their state orders.
