CDC Announces New Mask Guidelines Since Cape Cod Outbreak

The recent COVID-19 outbreak on Cape Cod prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to urge Americans to start wearing masks again. The CDC announced that 127 vaccinated people were infected with the Delta variant during the outbreak. The infected cases seemed to carry as much viral load as 84 unvaccinated or partially vaccinated people who also became infected. In a Wall Street Journal article, Brianna Abbot mentions a quote by CDC Director Rochelle Walensky. She mentioned “High viral loads suggest an increased risk of transmission and raised concern that, unlike with other variants, vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus” and that “This finding is concerning and was a pivotal discovery leading to CDC’s updated mask recommendation.” The alarming discovery by the CDC has frustrated many health experts and professionals in the United States.
