Health officials considering mask guidance revision for vaccinated Anthony Fawcett, the White House’s chief medical adviser, said on Sunday that senior US health officials were discussing whether to revise the US mask guidelines for the Covid-19 vaccination.
Matt Robinson and Bobby Blueford landed at PPE before entering the Covid isolation unit at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis.

Health officials considering mask guidance revision for vaccinated This is under consideration,” Fawcett told CNN’s State of the Union, although he also pointed out that local governments could impose their own rules on current guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC).
Los Angeles County and St. Louis, Missouri have reinstated the need for indoor masks and are considering whether other cities will follow suit.
Infections are on the rise in all 50 states and Washington DC, after a significant drop in the number of Covid-19 cases due to the nationwide vaccination campaign. This number is highest in states with large groups of isolated people. More than 1,010,000 people have died from Covid-19 in the United States.
At a White House surgeon general on Thursday, Vivek Murthy said 979% of hospital admissions and 99.5% of covidies occurred in untreated people.
According to the CDC, more than 1,162.7 million Americans have been vaccinated, or 49% of the population.
Fawcett said local leaders, especially in areas with low vaccination rates, must continue their efforts to get people vaccinated.
He cites recent work by two prominent Republicans who have repeatedly criticized him: Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise and Florida Governor Ron Desantis.
“I was shocked to hear people like Steve Scalise come out and say, ‘Hey, we got the shot,'” Fawcett said. We got more people and encouraged them to get the shot there. ”
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation Vaccine Monitor, 23% of Republicans, 16% of Democrats and 2% of Democrats said they would not be vaccinated.
First Lady Jill Biden comforted 12-year-old Adriana Little as she received her vaccine in Nashville, Tennessee, in June.

Desantis sells products that make fun of masks and fake fur, but in Florida they have been the most numerous since January.
“These vaccines save lives,” De Santis said last week.
House Republican Whip Scalise was vaccinated last week, and as he waited for the New Orleans Times-Picayun, he said he believed he had some immunity to his previous Covid-19 infection. But the rise of the delta form has been seen to suppress it.
“When you talk to people who run hospitals in New Orleans or other states, 90% of people in Delta variant hospitals are not vaccinated,” he said. “It’s another sign that the vaccine is working.”
Fawcett said the administration is considering whether some vaccinated people might need booster shots. “Weak people like organ transplants and cancer patients were more likely to be recommended for booster shots,” he said.
A local Missouri mayor told CBS Mouth Nation that some prominent residents are still speaking out against the vaccine.
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said, “We need to restrain ourselves from negative news.”
Lucas said Kansas City residents are focusing on vaccinations and his city no longer plans to reintroduce the need for masks, although he did consider it.
“I think every major city mayor in America is wondering if it’s time to return to office,” Lucas said.
