CDC Updates COVID Guidelines

Calls for vaccinated people to wear masks indoors. 

On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new masking guidelines due to the surge of the delta variant of COVID-19 across the United States. The new guidelines suggest that everyone, including those who have been vaccinated against the disease, should wear masks while indoors. The release from the CDC called for all teachers, school staff, students, and school visitors to wear masks. 

The majority of new cases of COVID-19 are among those who are unvaccinated. However, according to CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the level of the virus in the noses and throats of infected vaccinated people is “indistinguishable” from unvaccinated people, meaning that the disease can be spread by those who have received a vaccine. As a result, vaccinated people, “have the potential to spread that virus to others” according to Dr. Walensky. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Delta variant contagion to lessen in strength.
  • For the CDC as they assess health preventions for the nation.
  • That Dr. Walensky would be wise in suggesting protective measures.
