Nancy Pelosi calls for national face-mask mandate: We’re ‘long overdue’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that the country is “long overdue” for a national mask-wearing mandate to combat the novel coronavirus.

Asked whether it was time to “mandate the wearing of masks across the country,” she said, “I definitely — long overdue for that.”

“My understanding is that the Centers for Disease Control has recommended the use of masks but not required it because they don’t want to offend the president,” said Ms. Pelosi on ABC’s “This Week.”
