The American Disease Control Authority: Those who are vaccinated need to wear a mask
The US Disease Control Authority said today, Tuesday, that those vaccinated with the emerging coronavirus vaccines need to wear masks in high-risk places.
And the US CDC has made it clear that vaccinators can spread the virus in rare cases.
The US Disease Control Authority advised that those who received the vaccination fully wear masks in closed public places as well as in areas where the virus is spreading rapidly in response to the high number of infections of the Delta strain, according to Bloomberg News.
Current CDC guidelines state that all people 2 years of age and older who have not been fully vaccinated wear masks at school.
White House officials have repeatedly said it is up to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to change the official guidance and that they will follow in the lead of health and medical experts.
A senior administration official said the decision was prompted by the more transferable delta variant.
Officials explained that new evidence found that virus levels found in cases of transmission between vaccinated people are similar to those found in unvaccinated individuals infected with the Coronavirus, raising concerns that vaccinated individuals may be able to spread the virus.
