Frontline essential workers across the US are criticizing the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) announcement last week that individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer need to wear masks indoors and outdoors.

In a statement released Saturday, National Nurses United (NNU), the country’s largest union of registered nurses, said the CDC’s latest guidance “is not based on science, does not protect public health and threatens the lives of patients, nurses and other frontline workers across the country.”
