Should wearing masks be mandatory? | The Tylt
California made masks mandatory for residents in a public indoor space, as well as in outdoor spaces where physical distancing is impossible. This statewide mask order came after some counties wavered on mask requirements despite California posting a troubling upswing in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations. Several studies and models have shown that universal mask-wearing is a key component to controlling this pandemic—unfortunately, the act has been politicized by President Trump and the Republican party. Some states like Texas have taken the opposite approach and have banned local authorities from imposing mask requirements on people indoors or outdoors.
