I’m reiterating my call for every governor, mayor and local leader to maintain and reinstate the mask mandate. Please, this is not politics. Reinstate the mandate if you let it down, and businesses should require masks as well. Look, as I do my part to accelerate the vaccine distribution and vaccinations, I need the American people to do their part as well. Mask up. Mask up. It’s a patriotic duty. It’s the only way we ever get back to normal. At least 90 percent of all adults in this country will be eligible to be vaccinated by April the 19th, just three weeks from now, because we have the vaccines. For the vast, vast majority of adults, you won’t have to wait till May 1. We still are in a war with this deadly virus. And we’re bolstering our defenses, but this war is far from won. Together, we have so much to be proud of in the past three weeks. Past more than three weeks — past 10 weeks. We also have so much to be sorrowful about. Nearly 1,000 Americans a day are still dying from Covid-19 as we approach 550,000 deaths in a single year. Now’s not the time to let down. Now’s not the time to celebrate. It is time to do what we do best as a country, our duty, our jobs: Take care of one another and fight this to the finish.
