Vatican Officials Trying To Convince Pope To Wear Mask
THE VATICAN IS TRYING TO CONVINCE POPE FRANCIS TO WEAR A MASK IN PUBLIC
(CNN) – The Vatican is trying to convince Pope Francis to wear a mask in public.
That’s according to the Vatican’s coordinator for its COVID-19 commission.
The spokesman says he’s hopeful the pope will start to wear a mask soon, especially since he is in the high-risk age group for COVID.
Pope Francis has been criticized for not wearing a mask in public, particularly at his Wednesday general audience in the Vatican.
It’s attended by several hundred people in close contact.
