Summary

Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com.Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Wednesday that the agency's guidance on face masks would not change."[The] CDC continues to recommend that any mask is better than no mask and we do encourage all Americans to wear a well-fitting mask to protect themselves and prevent the spread of COVID-19. And, we want to provide Americans [with] the best and most updated information to choose what mask is going to be right for them," she added.The statement comes on the heels of one recent study that said cloth masks may not even be effective at protecting against the omicron variant of COVID-19.The Washington Post reported Monday that the agency was working to update its guidance to recommend people opt for the highly protective N95 or K95 masks, citing "an official close to the deliberations." 15 AMID SURGE OF COVID-19 CASESAs the omicron variant continues to surge, sending hospitalizations and case numbers skyrocketing to record highs, Walensky cited a preprinted study of data from Southern California's Kaiser Permanente that had been analyzed by academic partners with CDC collaboration and funding.
