WASHINGTON – Should vaccinated people start wearing masks inside again? That’s something the White House is considering right now.







The CDC says the U.S. is averaging more than 40 thousand new cases every day, but less than 58 percent of people 12 and up are fully vaccinated.

The White House says we are at a pivotal moment in the pandemic. Earlier this year, the CDC dropped its mask recommendation for people who are vaccinated, but now, President Joe Biden is holding preliminary conversations on whether that guidance should be revisited.







“What’s happening now is all the major scientific operations in this country and the 25-person group we put together are looking at all the possibilities of what’s happening now,” said Biden.

White House officials have repeatedly said it will be up to the CDC whether to change official guidance.
