Biden Signs Several Executive Actions to Change the U.S.’s Response to COVID-19

On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed more than a dozen executive actions, some of which reverse decisions made by his predecessor, former President Donald Trump.  

Several executive actions will make changes to the U.S. response to COVID-19 and try to ease some of the financial strain on Americans resulting from the pandemic. Other executive actions directly target and undo Mr. Trump’s actions on the environmentimmigration, the U.S. census, and regulatory changes.  

Mr. Biden signed three executive orders in the presence of reporters — implementing a mask mandate on federal property, increasing support for underserved communities, and rejoining the Paris climate accord.

“I thought there’s no time to wait. Get to work immediately,” he said.
