Just In: CDC Issues New Statement – They’re Bringing Masks Back AGAIN [Report]

On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that vaccinated people wear masks indoors under certain circumstances.

The new guidance comes about two months after President Joe Biden declared it a “great day in America” when the CDC revised its mask guidelines for vaccinated people.

“As recently as last week, an agency spokesman said that the C.D.C. had no plans to change its guidance unless there was a significant change in the science,” the New York Times reported.

“Federal officials met on Sunday night to review new evidence that may have prompted the reversal,” the report continued. “The new guidance would mark a sharp turnabout from the agency’s position since May that vaccinated people do not need to wear masks in most indoor spaces.”

“It’s a dynamic situation. It’s a work in progress; it evolves like in so many other areas of the pandemic,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. “You’ve got to look at the data.”

Some areas such as Palm Beach, Florida, have brought back the mask mandates and social distancing, although 100 percent of residents over 16 are already vaccinated.

“People who are vaccinated can be infected with the coronavirus, particularly with the Delta variant,” Council President Maggie Zeidman stated. “The viral load with the Delta variant is much higher. That means that everybody is susceptible. People who are vaccinated now need to mask up, so everybody has to wear a mask.”

The reoccurring measures will “remain in effect until the town deems it safe to relax mitigation efforts,” explained Kirk Blouin, Town Manager. Meanwhile, the police have been “authorized to issue trespass warnings and remove any individuals, not in compliance with the policy.”

According to the Google News coronavirus tracker, the last death in Palm Beach County was June 3. On July 25, Palm Beach County had 569 cases during a 7-day average.
