Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, believes it is time to mandate masks due to the surging COVID-19 cases in the United States.

Currently COVID-19 cases have increased in 32 states.

Fauci has been encouraging people to wear masks and social-distance for months, but he knows there are many people not complying with the COVID-19 safety protocols.

Fauci fears that the cooler weather ahead will increase numbers even more if masks are not mandated, but he doesn’t believe making it a federal law is the answer.

Fauci suggests that local government mandate mask-wearing and enforce COVID-19 safety protocols.

There’s going to be a difficulty enforcing it, but if everyone agrees that this is something that’s important and they mandate it and everybody pulls together and says, you know, we’re going to mandate it but let’s just do it, I think that would be a great idea to have everybody do it uniformly.

We all know the type of Americans who are refusing to wear masks and why they are refusing to wear masks.

It baffles me that certain people are willing to risk their lives and the lives of everyone around them because they don’t want to be told what to do.

I can’t leave out the idiots that claim COVID-19 is a hoax despite the 200,000 deaths in America.

Please mask up and follow the COVID-19 safety protocols and keep your family safe.
