Vaccine may be mandatory in America (Corona Vaccine in US) – symbolic picture
US Coronavirus Delta Variant: Due to the rapidly increasing new cases of Delta variants in America, the Biden administration has said two things. The first thing was said that people should wear masks again and secondly, it could be made mandatory for government employees to vaccinate (Covid-19 Cases in US). Because getting the vaccine is a personal decision, the government employees who are not getting the vaccine will be allowed to come to work only after daily COVID testing.
In the last 3 weeks, more than 80 percent of the Delta variant cases have been reported in the US, many of which were breakthrough cases. According to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), these are the cases in which people have become victims of the delta variant of COVID even after getting the vaccine (US Coronavirus Mask Rule). Due to these breakthrough cases, the government has withdrawn its policy of 2 months ago. In which it was said that those who have got the vaccine, they do not need to wear masks.

Immediately after this press briefing, the office of Vice President Kamala Harris also provided masks to all media personnel immediately.
Instructions to employees to wear masks
Along with this, the White House issued instructions through an email to all its employees to wear masks. Today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has also made it mandatory for both houses to wear masks again (US Changed Mask Rule).
