On the front page of the June 25 paper, the caption beneath the photo said, “Everyone entering the Assembly Chambers was required to wear a mask, complete a contact tracing log, and have a forehead temperature check.” Then, on page A6, most of the people pictured inside the Chambers were not wearing masks. Did they remove their masks after entering?

Even President Jair Bolsonaro was ordered by a Brazilian federal judge to wear a mask in public, with a fine for each infraction. There should be ways of enforcing these common-sense policies.
