On Friday, Joe Biden’s U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its guidance on mask-wearing.

The Daily Wire reports:

The Wall Street Journal reported, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday changed the metrics it uses to assess Covid-19 risk by county across the U.S. Risk will now be assessed based on three factors, the CDC said: new Covid-19 cases per 100,000 residents in the past seven days; new Covid-19-related hospital admissions; and the percentage of hospital beds occupied by Covid-19 patients.”

The agency is now using three different levels to communicate the local level of COVID-19 risk: low, medium, and high. The agency will publish the levels for each county on its website.

The CDC noted, if the local level is low-risk, people should “[w]ear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk”; if it is medium risk, immunocompromised or people at high risk for serious illness should speak with their health care provider about additional measures, like mask-wearing “or respirators indoors in public.” The agency added, for medium-risk areas, “If you live with or have social contact with someone at high risk for severe illness, consider testing yourself for infection before you get together and wearing a mask when indoors with them.”

For high-risk areas, the CDC said people should still wear a well-fitting mask inside in public, as well as in K-12 schools. If someone is immunocompromised or at severe risk, they should “[w]ear a mask or respirator that provides you with greater protection.”

Search a little on the web, and you’ll find two government whistleblowers, Tammy Clark and Kristen Meghan, who are toxicologists with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), and who say that masks (including N95 ones) tend to adversely affect your health and immune system, by reducing oxygen and increasing carbon dioxide levels. Tight-fitting, thicker masks are more dangerous in this way. There is also a good article, “If masks don’t work, then why do surgeons wear them?” by Dr. Jim Meehan, to be found here: www [dot] meehanmd [dot] com.
