According to the newly signed executive order, now both federal employees and visitors are required to “wear masks, maintain physical distance” everywhere from national parks to federal monuments and other federal lands.
"It is the policy of my Administration to halt the spread of coronavirus… by relying on the best available data and science-based public health measures," Biden wrote in his executive order. "Put simply, masks and other public health measures reduce the spread of the disease, particularly when communities make widespread use of such measures, and thus save lives."
Wearing masks isn't a partisan issue — it's a patriotic act that can save countless lives. That's why I signed an executive order today issuing a mask mandate on federal property. It's time to mask up, America.— President Biden (@POTUS) January 21, 2021
But what happened when Joe Biden himself visited the federal property? Right, President Biden didn’t wear a mask when he arrived at Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on the inauguration night.
