President Biden went straight to work after his swearing-in ceremony to battle the COVID-19 pandemic by requiring face masks be worn in most areas face masks were already being worn, like airplanes and federal buildings.
Only now it’s an executive order, and the mandate includes all federal lands, of which there is a lot in Colorado.
Accordingly, to protect the Federal workforce and individuals interacting with the Federal workforce, and to ensure the continuity of Government services and activities, on-duty or on-site Federal employees, on-site Federal contractors, and other individuals in Federal buildings and on Federal lands should all wear masks, maintain physical distance, and adhere to other public health measures, as provided in CDC guidelines.
Wearing masks isn’t a partisan issue — it’s a patriotic act that can save countless lives. That’s why I signed an executive order today issuing a mask mandate on federal property. It’s time to mask up, America.

Then in typical, hypocritical, Democrat fashion, Biden broke his own rules only hours later and went maskless at the Lincoln Memorial.
Does Joe Biden’s new executive order mandating masks on federal property not apply to Joe Biden while he’s on federal property?
Because here he is at the Lincoln Memorial with no mask just hours after signing it.

The rules don’t apply to his family, either.

Biden’s defenders took to social media defending Dear Leader.
He was all alone and outside, so he didn’t have to wear a mask on federal property where it is now mandated, they argued.
