Infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci signaled this week that he would support a national mask mandate after several months of shying away from such a policy.

"[I]f people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating it," he said on Friday during a CNN interview,

"There's going to be a difficulty enforcing it," he continued, "but if everyone agrees that this is something that's important and they mandate it and everybody pulls together and says, you know, we're going to mandate it but let's just do it, I think that would be a great idea to have everybody do it uniformly."
