New CDC guidelines leads to reimposing mask mandates

Mixed reactions over new CDC guidelines. Nevada and Kansas enforce indoor masking.

Where: Washington, DC

The Facts

The CDC’s new guidance recommends that fully vaccinated people wear a mask in public indoor settings if they are in an area of substantial transmission.

The advisory that mainly aimed to contain the spread of the Delta variant (B.1.617.2) drew mixed reactions from various entities, with some rushing to reimpose mask mandates and others resisting them.

On Wednesday, the White House Office of Management and Budgets instructed agencies to mandate masks in federal buildings in COVID-19 hot spots.

Nevada and Kansas City, Missouri were among the first to reimpose indoor mask requirements following Tuesday’s announcement.

Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Montana, North Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas have either banned or limited face mask mandates.
