CDC Again Recommends Wearing Masks Indoors to Those Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Biden values ​​mandatory vaccination for all federal workers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the United States has again recommended this Tuesday to use masks indoors to those vaccinated against COVID-19 more than two months after announcing otherwise.

According to the latest guide from the health authority, fully vaccinated people are advised to use masks in “closed public environments” in places with “substantial” or “high” transmission levels, as well as their use in schools of face to the next school year.

“The new situation with the delta variant is worrying and, unfortunately, justifies an update of our recommendations,” said the director of the CDC, Rochelle Walensky, according to ‘The Hill’.

Given this announcement, the president of the United States, Joe Biden, has described this decision as “another step in the journey to defeat the coronavirus.” “I hope that all Americans living in the areas affected by the new CDC recommendations will follow them, I certainly will when I travel to these places,” he said in a statement from the White House.

Likewise, he has stressed the importance of vaccination against the disease, indicating that almost 70 percent of the American population has received at least one dose of the drug, however, he has called on those who have not yet done so, to which on Thursday will announce new measures on this matter.

“The most important thing about Tuesday’s announcement is that it makes it clear that the most important protection we have against the delta variant is to get vaccinated,” he said.

In this sense, it is expected that on Thursday it will announce the mandatory vaccination for all federal workers, while the White House has informed the staff that they must return to wearing masks at the Administration headquarters, according to the Bloomberg agency.

So far, 34,533,179 Americans have tested positive for coronavirus and 610,952 have died from the disease.
