WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House said on Wednesday that President Joe Biden hoped Americans would continue to follow coronavirus guidelines such as mask-wearing even as some states, including Texas, lift their restrictions amid the ongoing pandemic.

Biden administration officials have sought to push back against the lifting of restrictions, warning that now is not the time to stop being vigilant.
