CDC Agrees with WHO to Encourage Compulsory Mask Mandates for Vaccinated Population

A surge in the positive cases of Covid-19 all across the United States is caused due to the highly contagious delta variant, which has ultimately resulted in the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updating its guidelines for wearing Mask.

On Tuesday, the CDC announced during a telebriefing that it is recommended that the completely vaccinated people wear indoors in some areas — including the schools. This is different from its earlier issued guidelines in the month of July that said it is safe for the teachers and students who have been fully vaccinated to skip wearing face Mask.

The World Health Organization (WHO) continues to acclaim that to slow down the rapidly spreading delta variant of coronavirus. Everyone should continue wearing face Mask in crowded areas, even those past the two-week mark after receiving their second dose of vaccines, such as from Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca.Director of CDC, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, was previously stuck to those guidelines on NBC Today’s show on June 30, saying that fully vaccinated people are protected from the delta variant.

On Tuesday, the CDC has changed its guidelines for Mask-wearing to say that vaccinated people should continue wearing indoors in certain areas of the country. CDC has advised all people to wear regardless of their vaccination status.However, CDC has also warned CNN that there is still a small chance for the fully vaccinated people to become infected with the new variant if they are exposed to it.
