CDC Dir. On Texas Fully Reopening: ‘Now Is Not the Time to Release All Restrictions’

‘The next month or two is really pivotal in terms of how this pandemic goes’

EXCERPT:

WALENSKY: “Thank you for the question. I think we at the CDC have been clear that now is not the time to release all restrictions. I do think that, as I said, the next month or two is really pivotal in terms of how this pandemic goes as scale up vaccination. We really do need to decrease the amount of virus that is circulating as we’re trying to vaccinate all of the public.”
