The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday clarified its stance on various kinds of masks, acknowledging that the cloth masks frequently worn by Americans do not offer as much protection as surgical masks or respirators.

While this disparity is widely known to the general public, the update marks the first time the C.D.C. has explicitly addressed the differences. The agency’s website also no longer refers to a shortage of respirators.

The article goes on to state the following:

The change comes as infections with the highly contagious Omicron variant continue to soar. Some experts have said that cloth masks are inadequate to protect from the variant, and have urged the C.D.C. to recommend respirators for ordinary citizens.


The report notes how the messaging from the CDC has evolved and changed since the coronavirus pandemic began.

Previously, the CDC recommendations advised people to choose to use a disposable N95 respirator instead of a mask “when supplies are available.”

Early in the pandemic, the C.D.C. and the World Health Organization both said that ordinary citizens did not need to wear masks unless they were sick and coughing.

  1. The N95 masks are not supposed to be worn for more than an hour and need to be properly fitted. Now you’ll have some bureaucrats decide all children should be given those masks to wear all day long in school and day care. Bad enough they are muffled with a cloth mask now. How much brain damage if their breathing is restricted even more?
    In my county no one under the age of 20 has died from Covid, yet every school child is mandated to wear a mask. Child abuse. Teachers are the safest profession against covid yet it’s not enough for them.

  2. N 95 is like wearing a gas mask. The others were bad enough. Masks have never stopped this and they never will. The fact that the government is going overboard over this new barely credit variant is pure stupidity

  3. Get the cold get over it and now your immune from that variant. There shot is what is bad. Btw all these new test kits Soros and Gates have the new company by way of Fauci….always something fishy going on

  4. I was wearing an N95 to board an airplane. I was told to replace it with a cloth mask or place a cloth mask over my N95. So airlines aren’t accepting N95 masks.

  5. How about no masks. Humans are meant to breath fresh air not be suffocated. Just another ploy to make money and to see how many sheep comply.

  6. CDC has no credibility period. CDC needs to be done away with and start over but only if it can be done in non political staffand they can’t have a investment in any conflicting stocks. NIH DR FRAUD should be terminated

  7. Finally the CDC admits Fauci lied. Hopefully they will also admit because of him people died. Then the little tyrannt can sir in jail.
