Delta Covid cases may force US to bring back facemasks

The Times says the White House and senior US health officials are debating whether to urge a return to masks, including for fully vaccinated Americans, to combat the surge in cases caused by the Delta variant.

Americans could be urged to resume wearing masks when vaccinated and unvaccinated people mix in public places. The requirement was lifted on May 13.

President Biden told a televised question-and-answer event he expected children under 12 to be urged to wear masks when they return to school. Biden has insisted vaccinations give protection against known variants and that fully vaccinated Americans can forgo masks.
