Will we still use masks when all the mandates expire?

THE BIG STORY | posted Monday, Jul 26th, 2021

In today’s Big Story podcast, masking has become second nature to most of us during the pandemic. But with the end cautiously in sight, how many of us will still cover up once we’re no longer forced to?

In eastern nations like Japan, masking in crowded public spaces in simply part of the culture — especially during flu season. Why hasn’t that taken hold here, and how can masks continue to help us stay safe without remaining a battleground in the culture wars?

GUEST: Dr. Mitsutoshi Horii, professor of Shumei University in Japan
