It hasn’t been a good week for the pandemic recovery in the U.S. With a continuing rise in the number of new Covid cases, largely made up of the more contagious Delta variant, the country saw several disheartening developments:
• The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention changed its guidance, now recommending that everyone—including people who have been vaccinated—wear a mask when indoors in high-transmission regions.
• The White House announced that the U.S. was not ready to lift restrictions on international travelers.
• Due to a sharp increase in community spread, a majority of Nevada counties will re-impose an indoor mask mandate starting July 30. Everyone, vaccinated or not, will need to wear a mask in public places. This is similar to rules imposed in Los Angeles County on July 18.
