Manchin on Masks: ‘Unless You Make It Mandatory, You’re Going to Have a Problem’

‘If you’re going to have people in your business, you have to have a mask on when you go in’

EXCERPT:

MANCHIN: “As a businessperson, if the governor is not going to do it and say to all businesses, if you’re going to have people in your business, you have to have a mask on when you go in. In Washington, D.C., I went to a CVS a month ago, I forgot my mask, and they said it’s mandatory, and from that day forth, I never forget it again. So unless you make it mandatory, you’re going to have a problem. And I think you're going to take this extra precaution until we get an antibody or get a vaccine. It’s going to be uncomfortable. It’s not going to be who we are as a people but it’s going to be safe. And all the experts and all the scientists are telling this. I wish the president would heed their advice.”
