As the first wave of COVID-19 gets worst and seeing spikes all around the nation, states are beginning to require the wearing of masks:
Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee announced Tuesday that a new statewide mandate requiring residents to wear face masks will go into effect later this week in response to a new surge of coronavirus cases.
Governor Jay Inslee:
"I think of these face coverings, in some sense, as a statement," Inslee said during a news conference announcing the rule. "It's a statement that when you wear it, it means you care about people, because it means you want to reduce the risk that you are going to infect another person."
So far, 2.3 Million Americans have been infected with COVID-19 while a heartbreaking 121,000 American lives have been lost.
