The AMA is hailing President Joe Biden’s first flurry of executive orders to address the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, immigration and LGBTQ issues.
On COVID-19, the administration launched a 100-days masking challenge, asking Americans to #MaskUp for 100 days and requiring masks and physical distancing in all federal buildings and lands, and by federal employees and contractors. The Department of Health and Human Services will work with state and local officials to implement masking and other public health measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, which has killed 400,00 Americans since the first case was identified in the U.S. 12 months ago.
My latest for the AMA. The whole shebang.
