As the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus continues to rise, the U.S. Center for Disease control and Prevention (CDC) released new guidance on face masks.
The CDC recommends that people, regardless of their vaccination status, wear a face mask in certain indoor situations where there is a risk of “substantial and high transmission” of COVID-19. This includes schools, retail stores, and some businesses.
This comes as California becomes the first U.S. state to mandate regular COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated teachers as their state data shows a rising 22% new cases per week.
While health disparities leave African Americans vulnerable to COVID-19 at higher rates, our research shows that 51% of African Americans say they are fully vaccinated, and 54% continue to wear masks in public and private settings.
Public health experts are warning vaccinated people to not post photos of their vaccine cards on social media or anywhere else online.
“Don’t share it on social media because there is protected health information on it,” said Dr. Jerry Abrams, a physician who works at the Kedran Community Health Center in Los Angeles.
