PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio)  This week on Flashpoint: Host and KYW Community Affairs reporter Cherri Gregg asks the burning questions about the impact of the new mandatory masking order that goes into effect in Pennsylvania on April 19. 

Businesses must require all employees and customers to wear masks or facial coverings or deny entry. But what will this do to our culture? Anonymity has an impact on individual behavior. It can lead to more crime and suspicion.  What will be the consequences on individual groups? 

Experts say coronavirus is ripe for spread behind the wall. 

This week, actor Bill Cosby made headlines when word came out that he did not qualify for the reprieve granted by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf's recent executive order prioritizing release of certain low-risk inmates in state prisons.
