Biden’s CDC reverses May guidance, calls for Americans to mask up once again

It was only a matter of roughly eight weeks ago that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finally announced an end to the face mask guidance for those who had received the COVID-19 vaccine. It was a welcomed bit of news after a long year, and President Joe Biden proclaimed it was a “great day in America.”

However, thanks to the spread of the contagious “Delta” variant of the virus, the CDC has completely reversed course, yet again, and issued the order on Tuesday that a large swath of Americans are to immediately begin donning masks indoors — even those who’ve been vaccinated, according to CNBC

“In areas with substantial and high transmission, CDC recommends fully vaccinated people wear masks in public, indoor settings to help prevent the spread of the delta variant, and protect others. This includes schools,” the CDC announced.

The agency stopped just short of a nationwide, blanket mandate, instructing those in areas of “substantial” or “high” virus transmission rates — which covers most of the South and West — to mask up.

“Today, we have new science related to the delta variant that requires us to update the guidance regarding what you can do when you are fully vaccinated,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said on a call with reporters. “This pandemic continues to pose a serious threat to the health of all Americans.”

The news paints a grim picture, as many health experts had already predicted a resurgence of the virus in the fall, to some degree, but it’s only July, and case counts are already spiking across the country.

As the start of the new school year approaches — a year believed by most to be the first return back to normalcy in over a year — the CDC’s insistence that students, teachers, and all school staffers mask up will undoubtedly cause a new round of controversy.

Biden promised Americans on Tuesday that strapping on the mask — and getting vaccinated — will lead to evading the dreaded lockdowns and other restrictions that nearly crushed the U.S. economy last year.

“More vaccinations and mask wearing in the areas most impacted by the Delta variant will enable us to avoid the kind of lockdowns, shutdowns, school closures, and disruptions we faced in 2020,” the president said.

The Marxist in DC are just seeing how long they can control the sheep, planning for total control. It’s time for us Patriots to rise up with arms and forcibly take our nation back.

And the communist democrat cult party is still trying to herd the sheeple! (don’t look where this bunch of morons (communist democrat cult part members) are hiding the infected illegal border insurgents across the country (nothing to see there))
What other medical study are the communist democrat cult party coming up with, maybe the affects of syphilis on the black population, oh wait they already tried that.

Masks do not work. In fact, the fire fighters and civilians around the raging forest fires, we’re told not to wear the none surgical cotton masks. The smoke and gases will go right through. The virus is so significantly minute, it flows right through with no issues.
The mask has to be form fitted and with out facial hair for it to be effective. Airfed respirators is the only answer for protection.
If you can smell a fart through a mask, the mask has failed you.

Masks contain GRAPHENE which is a poison which other counteies say it gets into the lungs.I don’t believe the illness is as dangerous as the masks.

I will not wear a mask again. I’ll go with the catch and release program which works so well for criminals. How did we allow this government to be in control. I am and always will be a Trump supporter.

well the CDC , Biden , Fauci all can go suck lemons and limes I refuse to get their experimental gene altering shot that has proven to be fatal and destroys a persons natural immune system. I also refuse to hide my face behind a mask this is all a setup so the DEMOCRATS can cheat in the 22 midterm elections and maintain control of the senate and house.!

Wish this administration would get real. No one wants to mask up again. Why don’t they close the border it sure would help . So they say one thing and don’t really care.

I won’t follow Biden’s unlawful orders. He has no authority to require masks. I will wear a mask where required by the property owner, or will take my business elsewhere. I will obey my governor’s lawful orders. Biden can retreat to his basement.

After leaving my previous job 12 months ago, I’ve had some good luck to learn about this website which was a life-saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their house. My latest paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $71600… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet.
