President-elect Joe Biden says he’s going to ask Americans to cover their faces in public for the first 100 days of his presidency. Urging people to wear masks is entirely reasonable.

Yet after almost a year with no such common-sense guidance from the White House, Biden’s modest request seems almost shocking — a sad commentary on the lack of leadership to this point.

Guiding America toward prudence in coping with COVID-19 is going to be no less important as vaccines become more widely available.
