The U.S. government’s leading health officials are actively considering recommending that even those individuals that are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 wear face masks in public settings again, Dr. Anthony Fauci has confirmed.

Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and is President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, told CNN’s “State of the Union” that he has taken part in conversations about altering the mask guidelines, as the Associated Press reported.

The move was criticized by some experts who argued it didn’t allow for the potential for breakthrough infections or transmission by fully vaccinated people, and may have undermined efforts to persuade unvaccinated people to get their shots.

The nation’s largest union for registered nurses, National Nurses United, in a letter on July 12 to Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the head of the CDC, urged the agency to revive the masking mandate to help protect essential workers. The letter came as the highly transmissible delta variant of COVID was spreading fast across the U.S., especially in states with low vaccination rates.

Fauci said he was “very frustrated” at the “unnecessary predicament” the U.S. finds itself in with delta as many Americans are refusing vaccination. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” he said.

The CDC’s vaccine tracker is showing that 49.1% of the overall U.S. population is fully vaccinated, a number that is barely budging from day to day. That means they have had two doses of the vaccines developed by Pfizer PFE, +0.37% and German partner BioNTech and Moderna, or one dose of Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot vaccine. The AstraZeneca vaccine that has been widely used in the U.K. and elsewhere, has not received emergency use authorization in the U.S.

Among adults 18-years-and-older, 60% are fully vaccinated while 69% has received at least one shot, a squeak short of Biden’s goal of having at least 70% of adults receive at least one shot by the July 4 holiday. iframe.twitter-tweet { width: 100% !important; }
