The White House walked back a statement regarding the possibility of enforcing new coronavirus lockdowns due to the spread of the Delta variant.
On Thursday, Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre during the daily briefing if the administration would support future COVID-19 lockdowns.
The article goes on to state the following:
Doocy asked, “So if you’re listening to the science, 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. ”
Jean-Pierre said that the Biden administration has not ruled out future lockdowns and school closures.
“Well we listen to it. Like I said, we listen to the CDC and the expert and their guidance are, you know, the CDC is a body that is very well respected, And we follow again, we follow their guidance,” Jean-Pierre told Doocy.
DOOCY: “President Biden said that we are not returning to lockdowns… Why should Americans trust him now?”

The White House walked back the statement hours later in a pair of tweets, stating that the administration is not considering lockdowns, despite claiming they were not off the table earlier in the day.
“To be clear, here is what [President Biden] said this week: ‘more vaccinations and mask wearing in the areas most impacted by the Delta variant will enable us to avoid the kind of lockdowns, shutdowns, school closures, and disruptions we faced in 2020….We are not going back to that,’” Jean-Pierre wrote Thursday evening.
“We will not be going back into lockdowns. Why? Because we now have the tools to put this virus behind us. The science says the vaccines work – including against the Delta variant. We urge Americans to get vaccinated,” she added.
