An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Face masks should be a federal requirement

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

The science is clear that wearing masks is effective at slowing the spread of COVID-19. Wearing masks in public (indoors or outdoors) when social distancing is not possible should be a federal requirement until a vaccine has been administered to a sufficient threshold of the population. Goldman Sachs has recently reported that a national mandate could raise mask-wearing compliance by 15%, and could cut the daily growth rate of confirmed cases to .6%. Face masks keep the economy open without having to shut down businesses. We need leadership at the federal level to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. If we are all in this together, we must have regulations that compel us to do what is best for the greater good and not our self-interests. These are not partisan issues, these are life and death issues. Again, I urge you to make face masks required until we are out of the woods.
