The CDC has said in countless statements that vaccinated persons are protected from the Delta variant and COVID-19 at large, therefore do not need to wear a mask.
Now, despite this rhetoric the CDC has begun discussions about issuing mask guidance even for those who are vaccinated according to Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci claims that he himself is a part of the discussions.
Fox reported that, Fauci spoke on CNN’s “State of the Union” about COVID-19 and was asked about one projection that suggests cases will continue rising if more Americans don’t get vaccinated. Fauci confirmed that “it’s not going to be good” and declared the country is “going in the wrong direction.” He also warned that the CDC is discussing mask mandates for people who have been fully vaccinated – a subject that the White House has been pressed on in recent weeks.
Recently several cities including Boston, Chicago, and Atlanta have instituted mask mandates fir school children, even those who are fully vaccinated.
LA county has reinstitute its mask mandates. We are seeing various areas move backward once more against the science.
Press Secretary Jen Psaki has said that there is no update in mask policy from the White House, and that if anything changes it will ultimately come from the Center of Disease Control.
