Vaccinated WH workers to start wearing masks again

All the staff and journalists that work indoors on the White House's compound will have to wear facial masks again even though they are fully vaccinated in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, United States President Joe Biden's administration stated on Tuesday.

The announcement comes after the country's Centers for Disease Control and Perfection (CDC) issued a recommendation for wearing masks in "public indoor settings" in areas of "substantial or high transmission" of the Delta variant of the virus.

"Today's announcement makes clear that the most important protection we have against the Delta variant is the vaccine. Although most US adults are vaccinated, too many are not and that has to change," Biden commented.
