Mask on, Mask Off. It seems the CDC can’t decide what recommendation to give Americans.
At first, masks did nothing to help Covid.
Now, they are mandatory in many states. With many in blue states wearing them outside, alone.
I truly feel for those who think wearing a mask alone outdoors helps.
Their decision is rooted in fear, caused by the mainstream media.
The CDC is expected to announce new recommendations today for the fully vaccinated, easing mask-wearing restrictions outdoors.
Twitter is already reacting to this news:
Fauci the liar! He knew in 2020 that the risk of transmission of #COVID-19 was very rare, but HE MADE US WEAR MASKS. But now it’s 2021 and Biden is POTUS, we’ll kinda, abs the outdoor mask mandate goes away. LIARS!!! #LeftIsWrong

MASKING CHANGES? It is expected that President Joe Biden and the CDC will announce some changes to the masking guidelines. It is believed they will address outdoor mask wearing.

Biden expected to lift outdoor masking recommendation for vaccinated adults https://t.co/PN9oeCuqBO Hey moron, go outside and look around, most people haven't been wearing their mask outdoors for many months. Just another sign of Dementia, you need to go.

I personally will not be listening to the recommendations and will continue to go mask-free outdoors, unvaccinated. Risky business in 2021 when you live in a blue state!
Here is what the New York Times had to say about the upcoming CDC update:
Biden and top U.S. health officials are expected on Tuesday to announce new recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals, including a possible easing of mask restrictions outdoors.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said on NBC News last week that the agency was “looking at” whether it’s still necessary to wear a mask outdoors. And on Sunday, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease specialist, said that the federal health agency might move toward loosening mask requirements.
He characterized the risk of infection to a vaccinated individual outdoors as “minuscule.”
“I think it’s pretty common sense now that outdoor risk is really, really quite low,” for a vaccinated people, Dr. Fauci said on the ABC News program “This Week.”
Several states have already dropped mask mandates and fully reopened indoor and outdoor venues, even for large sporting events. New York still has mask requirements.
A growing body of research indicates that the risk of spreading the virus is far lower outdoors than indoors. Viral particles disperse quickly outdoors, experts say, meaning brief encounters with a passing walker or jogger pose very little risk of transmission.
“That biker who whizzes by without a mask poses no danger to us, at least from a respiratory virus perspective,” Dr. Paul Sax, an infectious disease specialist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, wrote in a blog post for The New England Journal of Medicine.
A recent systematic review of studies that examined the transmission of the coronavirus and other respiratory viruses among unvaccinated individuals concluded that fewer than 10 percent of infections occurred outdoors and that the odds for indoor transmission were 18.7 times higher than outdoors. (The odds of superspreading events were 33 times higher indoors.)
But the paper’s author said that the low odds of transmission outdoors could simply reflect the fact that people had spent little time outside. In cases where transmissions occurred outdoors, there was often also prolonged or frequent contact with another individual or a group of people, or an indoor component to an outdoor gathering, said Dr. Nooshin Razani, an associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco.
“It does happen: You can get infected outdoors,” she said. “It usually has to do with how long you’re with someone and how often you see them, and if you’re wearing a mask and if you’re close to each other.”
The C.D.C. currently recommends that vaccinated people should wear masks and maintain six feet of distance from others in public, including while taking public transportation such as buses, trains or planes and while in transportation hubs. It also recommends they continue to avoid crowds, large gatherings and poorly ventilated spaces.
By the looks of it, mask-wearing for the unvaccinated may be recommended outdoors.
Is anybody going to listen to Biden’s advice?
The guy who lets illegals cross the border without recommending they have a covid vaccine?
The Twitter world can see right through this evil plan:
Point to a SINGLE piece of evidence to show wearing a mask outside prevents the transmission of Covid.
Outdoor transmission of Covid is nearly 0%. Literally almost 0 cases can be traced to an outdoor transmission.

Biden to give new outdoor mask guidance today. Why would anyone listen to this guy when he lets Covid + illegal immigrants into USA, doesn't comment on Cuomo's responsibility of killing over 5K nursing home patients or comment on rioters destruction/looting w/o masks/distancing.

Unfortunately, it seems the left still views the vaccine as freedom when it is anything but.
"I think we're increasingly going to see a world where people who've been vaccinated are going to enjoy a lot of freedoms." President Biden is expected to announce new guidance for outdoor mask-wearing, and vaccination status could be a factor. https://t.co/pmTtd8rdt5

I guess America is only the land of the free if you have a covid vaccine.
Will you be following the CDC’s updated mask guidance?
