"Since the pandemic poses a dire threat to public health and the economy, and since mask mandates are morally justified in these circumstances, the conclusion is that our leaders have an urgent duty to require people to wear masks in public places where there is a serious risk of transmitting the virus." His article "If government's first duty is to protect us, how can masks in public be optional?," co-authored with Martin Dobelle '19 EMPA, was published in The Hill. 07/27/20
