Reports: CDC to reverse mask-wearing guidance

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will recommend on Tuesday that people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 start wearing masks in some indoor spaces again due to the rapidly spreading Delta variant of the virus, US media reported.

Back in May, the CDC eased mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated Americans, however, the highly contagious strain of the coronavirus reportedly led to the change of heart among health officials.

The Delta variant is the dominant strain of the virus in the US at the moment, accounting for over 80% of all new cases, according to the most recent estimates.
