    White House says no change to mask mandate - Times of India
    WASHINGTON: The White House says it has not decided to change the guidance of the Covid-19 on the face mask. Spokeswoman Jen Psaki insisted on Thursday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, not the White House, was making public health decisions.
    Psaki says any change in guidance will come from the CDC.
    The current guideline is that fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear face masks, while those who have not been vaccinated should continue to wear them.
    White House and public health officials are debating whether to update the mask instructions because of the rise in Covid-19 infections blamed for the highly contagious Delta variant.
    CDC director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement on Thursday that while her company was always reviewing the data, the recommendations had not changed.
