By Joey Garrison | USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden on Thursday unveiled his administration’s strategy to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, signing 10 executive orders and other directives to jump-start the expansive effort.

After 15 Day One executive orders Wednesday that spanned a variety of subjects, Biden used his first full day in office to require masks in most planes, trains and airports, order a national strategy to reopen schools and create a “testing board” to expand testing for the virus, all via executive action.

Declaring “this is a wartime undertaking,” the president invoked the Defense Production Act to boost coronavirus testing and vaccination supplies, among a range of other orders and directives.
