President-elect Joe Biden told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday that he will ask Americans to wear masks for his first 100 days after he takes office.

“Just 100 days to mask, not forever. 100 days. And I think we’ll see a significant reduction,” Biden told Tapper during his first joint interview with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris since winning the election.

Biden said that where he has authority, like in federal buildings or in interstate transportation on airplanes and buses, he will issue a standing order that masks must be worn.

Biden also said he has asked Dr. Anthony Fauci to be a chief medical adviser and part of his Covid-19 response team when his administration begins next year.

  1. Harmless enough. They might keep one from catching colds. And as a fashion accessory, they can match the tie or vest. And unlike many other dumb and bigoted ideas the Democrats seem addicted to, this one is merely silly (at worse), but not expensive or disruptive.

  2. That is a very smart thing to say. And I strongly encourage everyone from our community to start from right now to wear. Even if you once had it, as can be seen in the previous post regarding the person that got it again. I also strongly urge and encourage YWN as we’re hopefully seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, to never post anything on covid thats against medical advice and don’t allow such comments. Please! Lives are at stake! It’s not like arguing if the world is flat or round, it’s pikuach nefesh. Please do the right thing and only postings that are scientifically based and encourage the procations. And in the zchus of saving lives, who knows how much schar you can get.

  3. It’s not Trump VS Biden!
    It’s America VS the Radical Far Left!
    It’s Good VS Evil!
    It’s Right VS Wrong!
    It’s Liberty and Freedom VS Communism and socialism!

  4. ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

    Inside public buildings and around people when I can’t distance, maybe. All the time, heck no!

    I don’t remember seeing this in the Constitution.

  5. All chareidim in EY seem to manage masks – including over the summer in oppressive heat, so let’s see whether Americans believe laws that are common around the world, and in many kehillos apply to them or not.

    Thank you for your unsolicited opinion. I just have 1 question for you. You must’ve learned the halachos of pikuach nefesh before coming to your conclusion. How else would you decide that it’s pikuach nefesh?? I’m sure it’s not from the media. So maybe you can guide me here. Where can I find these halachos so I can research it as well??

  7. Right Ash.
    And the virus totally stopped in Israel right?
    thats why there was a need for a lockdown over sukkos and another one now?
    What does it help

  8. Biden is trying hard to save lives. I wish all members of our community took this as seriously. Attacking a man for suggesting mask wearing when over 218,000 Americans were diagnosed, and close to 3000 died of covid just yesterday seems reasonable to me. Somebody disgrees?

  9. @Ash
    You made me make an account just for that comment
    charedim over here are NOT managing masks, no one is.
    I have never seen such a hate for the government and establishment as in the mask period.
    To call it unbearable is a gross understatement.
    After 100 days Biden will be the most hated man in the counry

  10. He has no authority to require this, and we will not obey him. It’s as simple as that. He can take his illegal “mandates” and shove them where the sun don’t shine.

  11. If you refuse to wear a mask, should your family, including your parents/grandparents in nursing homes, be the last to be offered any of the COVID vaccines?
