CDC expected to recommend vaccinated people return to wearing masks indoors

The nation’s top health agency is expected to backpedal on some of its masking guidelines and recommend that even vaccinated people wear masks indoors in parts of the U.S. where the coronavirus is surging.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to make an announcement later Tuesday.
