(Atlanta, GA) -- The CDC is updating its mask guidance, saying those who are fully vaccinated in coronavirus hot spots need to wear masks in indoor public settings. Dr. Rochelle Walensky issued the updated recommendations amid the rapid spread of the Delta variant. She said that strain is behaving differently than other identified variants. Walensky explained the Delta variant is willing to "outsmart" us. Walensky also made another plea to Americans to get vaccinated.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky also stated everyone should mask up in schools regardless of their vaccination status. Despite the new mask guidance, Dr. Walensky endorsed a return to in-person learning for this upcoming school year.
