As you are probably aware, the CDC updated its mask policy yesterday. The agency reverted back to requiring even vaccinated Americans to wear the face coverings in most situations. And former President Donald Trump isn’t having it.
“We won’t go back,” he wrote in a statement. “We won’t mask our children. Joe Biden and his Administration learned nothing from the last year. Brave Americans learned how to safely and responsibly live and fight back. Don’t surrender to [the virus]. Don’t go back! Why do Democrats distrust the science? Don’t let this happen to our children or our Country.”
The updated guidance directly impacts students, according to the director of the CDC.
“CDC recommends that everyone in K-12 schools wear a mask indoors, including teachers, staff, students, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. Children should return to full-time, in-person learning in the fall with proper prevention strategies in place,” said Director Rochelle Walensky.
