CDC follows the science. New science makes it clear: #DeltaVariant is surging & more infectious. Not vaccinated? Get a vaccine ASAP. In high transmission areas, even if fully vaccinated, mask in public indoors to help prevent spread & protect others. http://www.vaccines.gov https://twitter.com/CDCgov/status/1420104200957038594
