Well, Now We Have Another Fauci Flip-Flop to Add to the List

However, when campers are swimming or partaking in water activities, mask-wearing is not advised but 6-feet of distance is.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will soon issue new guidance on wearing masks outdoors, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who also said the risk of contracting COVID-19 while outdoors is "extremely low".

Coronavirus is almost 19 more likely to spread indoors compared to outside, and fewer than 10 percent of Covid infections had been contracted indoors as of a November Journal of Infectious Diseases study.

While fewer children have gotten sick with COVID-19 than adults, the CDC explains, they can still get infected and spread the virus to others.

The suggestions, which the CDC said are meant to supplement localized rules and regulations, come just weeks before camps are expected to begin opening.

"Camp administrators, working with local public health officials, should assess the level of community transmission to understand the burden of disease in the community", it says.

Updated guidance for overnight camps also suggests staff, volunteers, campers and family members get vaccinated against Covid-19.

Experts say there is very little possibility of transmission when you're outside, but the CDC recommends wearing a mask when you aren't alone or with people you live with.

He went on to say that new guidance from the CDC is forthcoming. Staff and campers are urged to have multiple masks on hand to replace ones easily that get wet or dirty.

L'Inde face à un violent rebond de l'épidémie — Nouveau variant
Au total, 2.074 décès ont été recensés sur 24 heures en Inde , portant le bilan officiel de l'épidémie à près de 185 000 morts. Le virus comporte néanmoins des points communs avec les autres souches, les symptômes étant similaires sur certains points.

During a Facebook live chat with Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo (D) last August, Fauci advised people to "get as much outdoors as you possibly can", noting that "superspreader" events nearly always happen indoors in places like "nursing homes, meat-packing, prisons, choirs in churches, congregations of weddings and other social events where people get together". Campers from different cohorts should keep 6 feet of distance, and campers and staff should stay 6 feet apart.

Campers outside of a cohort should always maintain at least six feet of distance, the CDC guidance said, and that same distance should be maintained between campers and staff.

Most activities should take place outdoors, and camps should adopt ventilation and disinfection practices for indoor spaces.

The guidance discourages close-contact and indoor sports, noting the increased risk of spreading COVID-19 in those situations.

A variety of other specific camp activities should be adjusted or avoided altogether, said the CDC.

Campers can take trips to places where they will not mix with others outside of the camp population, such as hiking trails or beaches, it adds.

And after camp, staffers and campers who aren't fully vaccinated should get tested three to five days after traveling home, and self-quarantine for seven days after travel.

Nap time mats used for younger campers should be sanitized before and after use, according to the guidance, and spaced out "as much as possible".
