08.02.21. Of Masks and Mandates

masks and mandates

Public outcry and confusion ensue after the CDC reverses its public recommendations on wearing masks, and mandates may be on the horizon as President Biden moves toward requiring coronavirus vaccinations among federal employees.

This week on Middle Theory… controversy ensues as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have reinstated their mask guidance even among vaccinated Americans in public areas, resulting in confusion and pushback, even from some medical professionals.

However, as numbers of newly infected individuals continue to rise, the most contentious development in recent days involves President Joe Biden’s new push to require vaccinations for federal employees, who otherwise will have to adhere to more strict regulations for wearing masks and testing for the coronavirus. How far will the administration go with its efforts to curb the number of new infections, and what will be the result of the institution of masks and mandates? We examine these questions, and more on this week’s episode of Middle Theory.
