The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention changed course Tuesday on some masking guidelines, recommending that even vaccinated people return to wearing masks indoors in parts of the U.S. where the delta variant of the coronavirus is fueling infection surges.
Citing new information about the variant’s ability to spread among vaccinated people, the CDC also recommended indoor masks for all teachers, staff, students and visitors at schools nationwide, regardless of vaccination status.
The science is clear that the vaccines work and that people who have already had COVID are largely immune from getting it again. Vaccines are widely available. It is also clear that even if you get COVID, it is not life threatening for the vast, VAST, majority of people. At this point, everyone has had the opportunity to get vaccinated and whether someone chose to get vaccinated or chose to not get vaccinated, the consequences are on them. I made my choice. Other people made their choices. Now we get on with life.
