The CDC has given an order to enable passengers to wear masks in the U.S. while using public transport. The announcement follows President Biden’s executive order to obey the mask guidelines provided by the CDC for all government agencies. Dr. Stanley Perlman, professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of Iowa, joined CBSN to clarify how the mandate could delay the spread of COVID-19.
