Mayor Kenney defends Philly's outlier mask mandate: 'People will complain about just about anything'

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney spoke with the Washington Post on Thursday and discussed the city’s new mask mandate, which has sparked local backlash and a lawsuit from a group of businesses. Philly is the only major city in the United States to bring back a COVID-19 mask mandate this spring. Kenney defended the decision of the city health department, arguing that public opposition is political and that he will continue to follow the guidance of his health department.
