CNN’s Bash to Biden’s Covid Adviser: Should the Biden Admin Consider Reimposing Mask Mandates in Low-Vaccinated Areas?
BASH: "Dr. Fauci says the administration made 'broad recommendations' that vaccinated individuals don't need masks, but that local governments have a 'degree of flexibility.' But my question for you is, local officials are looking to you, to the federal government, for guidance. So, should high-spread, low-vaccinated areas consider reimposing mask mandates?"
ZIENTS: "Well, as we have from the beginning, local governments will make their own local decisions, based on their vaccination rates and levels of disease.”
