The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to announce that people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 no longer need to wear masks or physically distance, indoors or outdoors in most circumstances.

"If things get worse, there is always a chance we may need to make changes to these recommendations", Walensky said, "but we know that the more people are vaccinated, the less cases we will have and the less chance of a new spike or additional variant emerging".

Republican lawmakers on Tuesday charged that health guidelines have unnecessarily remained in place even as more and more Americans get vaccinated.

The new guidance will still call for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, but could ease restrictions for reopening workplaces and schools.

The guidance means that millions of fully vaccinated Americans can begin returning to pre-pandemic activities, including in-person school and work, which many have eschewed since last March.

"I have been completely forthcoming with respect to the science, with respect to our guidance, with respect to our numbers, with respect to our cases". I don't anymore, ' she lectured the agency head.

Other experts, however, have said the agency had to move cautiously with a new and unpredictable virus, arguing that updates were appropriate only after real-world evidence demonstrated that the vaccines were as effective as they were in clinical trials. Why does this matter?' Collins continued.

"Good point", Biden responded.
