President Biden has been busy over these past couple of days in the chief executive officer position.

One of the most recent executive orders to pass has been requiring that all personal participating in interstate travel will be required to wear a mask according to Dakota News Now.

The forms of transportation included in the executive order are: buses, planes, trains, ships, and last but not least inside airports.

It's stated that one of the order's purposes is to help make mask enforcement both more consistent and easier for people to understand when they are traveling.

"In addition to the mask mandate, travelers from other nations will be required to produce a negative coronavirus test prior to traveling into the United States. They must also quarantine for 10-14 days"- Dakota News Now.

Some travelers expressed to Dakota News Now that the federal mandate is well received while others believe it wasn't needed.
