Noem also emphasized that localities should be able to mandate masks if they choose to. Chris Sununu, both Republicans, issues mask mandates in their states within the past week after previously resisting doing so. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, has also come under intense pressure to implement a mask mandate but resisted doing so. Brian Kemp, a Republican, has also not imposed a mask mandate in his state, while simultaneously encouraging people to wear masks. Kemp notably sued Atlanta earlier this year to bar it from enforcing a mask mandate but later dropped the suit.
