Biden: ‘Patriotic Responsibility to Wear a Mask, to Socially Distance’

During an interview aired on Tuesday’s broadcast of “NBC Nightly News,” Joe Biden stated that “it’s a patriotic responsibility to wear a mask, to socially distance.” And that both items are “critical pieces to dealing with bringing down this virus in a more manageable place.”

Biden said, “I hope that we’re going to be able to have a united voice on the need to mask, socially distance, testing and tracing. They’re critical, critical pieces to dealing with bringing down this virus in a more manageable place. The words of a president matter. And I think it’s critically important, I think it’s a patriotic responsibility to wear a mask, to socially distance.”
