That DC mask order exempting full vaxed lasted only one day.…
Wonder if it reflected the expected Biden admin action post 100 day mask challenge before the White House called a different play?
Even crazier, @MayorBowser made her outdoor mask mandate for unvaccinated *much worse than ever before*. Fleeting time language that was there from the original outdoor mask order to yesterday is gone.

What's the justification for THAT?

So, two weeks of elite media suddenly recognizing that outdoor transmission barely exists and outdoor mask mandates never should have existed, then Biden politicals overruled science and said outdoor mask on unless fully vaxed, then DC made their outdoor mandate MORE stringent.

Biden's CDC not only distorted and overruled their own science (including Dr. Hoeg's Wisconsin study), but actually allowed teachers unions to write key language in the CDC schools guidance contrary to the agency's own science. This is pure corruption.
Also an eerie echo of what the unions did in July 2020, when they got the American Academy of Pediatrics to reverse their science-based recommendations that all schools open in a joint political statement.
It's ugly but I get why the union does this stuff. Why don't CDC and AAP care about kids though?

450? Yesterday's CDC print has total age 0-17 deaths with COVID from January 1, 2020 to April 17, 2021 at 266.
We also have 1 pediatric flu death this season, and the apparent crowd-out effect happened everywhere there was COVID, including places like Sweden with no school closures or masking.

It is likely COVID net *reduces* pediatric infectious disease risk.
