WH: Health experts consider imposing mask mandates

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters during the briefing on Monday that health experts and members of the COVID-19 response team are considering introducing mask guidance on local levels even for vaccinated people.

The discussions have been prompted by the rapid spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus and a slowdown in the vaccination pace across America. Psaki noted that most cases and hospitalization spikes are witnessed among communities with low vaccination rates.

Psaki said that senior health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci was right when he said that the country is moving in the "wrong direction" as fewer US citizens are getting vaccinated and therefore the cases continue to spread.
