CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Wednesday the U.S. agency is leaving it up to states and local health officials to set guidelines around mask-wearing even after the World Health Organization urged fully vaccinated people to continue the practice.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has “always said that local policymakers need to make policies for their local environment,” Walensky said during an interview on NBC’s “Today.” She added that the agency’s guidelines broadly recommend that vaccinated people don’t need to wear masks.

... The CDC director’s comments come days after WHO officials urged fully vaccinated people to continue to wear masks, social distance and practice other pandemic safety measures as the highly contagious delta variant spreads rapidly across the globe.
