During a press conference on Thursday, Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre announced that the Biden Administration would be willing to impose more lockdowns if recommended by the CDC.
“President Biden says that we are not returning to lockdowns, shutdowns, and school closures, but he also once said that we didn’t have to wear masks anymore once we were vaccinated,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said. “So why should Americans trust him that?”
“Well, because we listen to the scientists, we listened to the expert[s],” Jean-Pierre replied. “This is a public health situation. This is not about politics at all. This is about saving lives. And this is what the President is all about. He wants to make sure that we are saving lives. If you look at … the last six months. That’s what he’s done, every day. And you see that in the numbers. Now we’re at a point where we have to double down and make it very, very clear to people that we can’t, we can’t let the pandemic win, we have to continue to fight.”
“So, if you’re listening to the scientists, if scientists come to you at some point down the line and say it is our opinion that there should be shutdowns and there should be school closures, you would do that?” Doocy asked.
“Well, we listen to, like I said, we listen to the CDC and the expert[s] and their guidance…are, you know, the CDC is a body that is very well respected,” Jean-Pierre responded. “And again, we follow their guidance.”

The statement from the Biden White House comes after they brought back mask wearing even for vaccinated Americans despite promoting the bogus “masked or vaxxed” campaign.
For months, the Democrat party told Americans that if they just “fell in line” and got vaccinated, they could get back to “normal life” and wouldn’t need to wear masks. This was a total lie.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to recommend Tuesday that fully vaccinated people begin wearing masks indoors again in places with high Covid-19 transmission rates, according to people familiar with the matter.
Federal health officials still believe fully vaccinated individuals represent a very small amount of transmission, according to the sources. Still, some vaccinated people could be carrying higher levels of the virus than previously understood and potentially transmit the virus to others, they said.
“As you have heard from me previously, this pandemic continues to pose a serious threat to the health of all Americans,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said to reporters on a call. “Today, we have new science related to the Delta area that requires us to update the guidance regarding what you can do when you are fully vaccinated.”
Isn’t it interesting how they cite “new science” so they can continue to manipulate the American people and protect themselves from criticism?
