Biden Does Not Want The Country To Reopen And Get Back To Normal

More News For You

The nation has been waiting patiently, in pseudo-solitude, for about a year now, hoping that some sort of medical miracle would arrive to carry us out and away from this horrid coronavirus pandemic.

The highly contagious illness has been ravaging America over the course of the last year, particularly impacting at-risk populations such as the elderly and the immunocompromised. This forced much of the nation into a quasi-isolation meant to mitigate the risks to our family and loved ones as we awaited either a vaccine or a surefire treatment.

Now, as vaccines continue to roll out in record numbers around the country, President Joe Biden is warning that we shouldn’t be too eager to get back to normal, however.

President Joe Biden expressed disappointment Monday that coronavirus cases are once again rising, urging states to pause reopening efforts and reinstate mask mandates.

“I’m reiterating my call for every governor, mayor, and local leader to maintain and reinstate the mask mandate,” Biden said at the White House. “Please, this is not politics. Reinstate the mandate if you let it down.”

And then…

“Mask up. Mask up. It’s a patriotic duty. It’s the only way we get back to normal,” he said.

Joe Biden even urged private businesses to continue requiring that customers wear masks.
He pointed to a warning of “impending doom” from Centers for Disease Control Director Rochelle Walensky earlier Monday, urging Americans to keep following coronavirus restrictions and guidelines.

“This is deadly serious,” Biden said, and added, “The failure to take this virus seriously is what precisely got us into this mess in the first place.

This conflicting set of messages is likely to fuel animosity toward the administration, especially as an enormous number of Americans continue to receive doses of the vaccine everyday.
