Jerome Adams, who served as Surgeon General in the Trump administration, is urging the Centers for Disease Control to rethink its mask guidance.
Adams’ concerns were spurred on by the rise of covid cases across the U.S. due to the Delta variant and vaccination rates dropping.
Instead of vax it OR mask it, the emerging data suggests CDC should be advising to vax it AND mask it in areas with ⬆️ cases and positivity- until we see numbers going back down again.
CDC was well intended, but the message was misinterpreted, premature, & wrong. Let’s fix it.
