Despite new CDC guidelines, President Joe Biden has announced he will continue to wear his mask outdoors.
As of this week, CDC announced a new guideline which makes the provision that vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks outside. Joe Biden told Craig Melvin of the Today’s Show that he will continue to wear a mask outside even though CDC guidelines have changed in relation to this.
President Biden continues to dub the precaution of wearing masks as “Patriotic responsibility for God’s sake.” The CDC stated that “Generally, for vaccinated people, outdoor activities without a mask are safe. However, we continue to recommend masking in crowded outdoor settings and venues such as packed stadiums and concerts.”
With this recent guideline from CDC, Dr, Fauci who is the top medical expert that the Biden Administration relies on stated that it is “common sense” to continue wearing masks. However, continued opposition stands from many citizens as well as Republican representatives. Across America, many states have already lifted state-wide mask mandates as are continuing to push their neighboring states and their legislators to do the same.
