WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday plans to recommend all kindergarten through 12th grade students and teachers wear masks regardless of vaccination status, sources briefed on the matter told Reuters.

CNN and the Washington Post reported the planned announcement earlier. Asked about the change to guidance for students and teachers, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said “this is new guidance that is being issued by the CDC.”
