The White House ordered all West Wing employees to wear masks at work


As we have already said, wearing a mask is an important means of preventing coronavirus infections. Yesterday ,the White House ordered all West Wing employees to wear masks at work unless they are sitting at their desks.

In an internal email obtained by The New York Times, people who work in the cramped quarters around the Oval Office were told that “as an additional layer of protection, we are requiring everyone who enters the West Wing to wear a mask or face covering.”

During Mr. Trump’s afternoon news conference, senior White House aides could be seen standing along the side of the Rose Garden — all of them wearing masks.
