Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris have called for a nationwide face mask mandate.
“Every American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months at a minimum,” Biden told reporters in Wilmington, Delaware.
"It's about saving Americans' lives. So, let's institute a mask mandate nationwide, starting immediately, and we will save lives. The estimates are we'll save over 40,000 lives in the next 3 months if that's done."
Biden is calling on governors to institute the mandates immediately.
