Kamala Harris said on Friday that a nationwide mask mandate would be among the first orders of business if she and Joe Biden were elected to the White House in November, calling it the “responsible” thing to do.
The Democratic vice presidential nominee expanded on the three-month plan that Biden has promised to enact if he won the White House, explaining that every American would be expected to wear a face covering amid the pandemic.
“Yes,” Harris, 55, said when asked if that would be one of their first actions in power during an interview on NBC’s “TODAY.”
“It’s a standard. I mean, nobody’s going to be punished,” Harris continued when asked how it would be enforced.
