Liberal media hit CDC for ‘confusing message’ about wearing masks
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has become the subject of unusual scrutiny from several liberal media outlets after its reversal of mask-wearing guidelines for those vaccinated against the coronavirus.
“It’s not good news that masking is going to be a part of the lives of people who have already been vaccinated,” CDC director Rochelle Walensky said on Tuesday as she updated official guidelines that all people in high risk areas should wear. a mask inside regardless of the vaccination status. âThis new direction weighs heavily on me.
Before the new guidelines rolled out, the CDC previously recommended that fully vaccinated people not be required to wear masks, but then decided to make the change citing the rapid spread of the new Delta variant of the virus.

He went on to accuse the CDC of changing guidelines to force unvaccinated people to get vaccinated and start using masks again, rather than the reason they gave for a potential increased risk of the Delta variant spreading. between vaccinated and unvaccinated people.

âMuch of this reality is beyond the control of the CDC. The country was polarized long before Covid. But the CDC also failed to maximize its chances of being heard,â the newsletter read. The announcement of the new guidelines was both vague and technical, making it difficult for many non-experts to understand. The agency did not say which areas of the country were affected or how that might change in the next few years. days.”
