Illinois Fully Aligns with New CDC Masking Recommendations

Delta variant spreading twice as easily from person to person as previous strains making vaccinations even more important

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) announced today it is fully adopting updated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) masking recommendations to protect against COVID-19 and the Delta variant.  CDC recommends that everyone, including fully vaccinated individuals, wear a mask in public indoor setting in areas with substantial and high transmission. 


CDC is also recommending universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status. 

“While data continues to show the effectiveness of the three COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized in the U.S., including against the Delta variant, we are still seeing the virus rapidly spread among the unvaccinated,” said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike.  “Cases and hospitalizations due to COVID-19 both continue to increase, overwhelmingly among the unvaccinated, but the risk is greater for everyone if we do not stop the ongoing spread of the virus and the Delta variant.  We know masking can help prevent transmission of COVID-19 and its variants.  Until more people are vaccinated, we join CDC in recommending everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask indoors in areas of substantial and high transmissions, and in K-12 schools.”

According to CDC, data show the Delta variant is much more contagious.  Delta spreads more than twice as easily from one person to another compared to other strains.  According to CDC, the Delta variant is causing some vaccine breakthrough infections, but even so, most breakthrough infections are mild, and the vaccines are preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death.

Areas of substantial transmission are considered by CDC to be those with 50 to 99 cases per 100,000 people over a 7-day period.  Areas of high transmission are considered to be those with more than 100 cases per 100,000 people over a 7-day period.  The community level of transmission can be found here

IDPH will be updating school FAQs and other guidance posted online to reflect the latest CDC Interim Public Health Recommendations for Full Vaccinated People

  1. It’s not a “masking recommendation”, it’s an I.Q. test.

    The DEMOCRAT fearporn epidemic is alive and well.

  2. The same people who won’t get vaccinated won’t wear the masks thus ensuring the extinction of these morons everywhere. Darwin is smiling.

  3. You have to wonder if that government organization can be trusted. Their leader of many years, Fauci, has given conflicting recommendations on masks and other matters for over 1.5 years. You also have to wonder about his cooperation and funding for a lab in China that was experimenting with viruses. Fauci gave unacceptable answers to questions from Senator Rand Paul, a medical doctor, at Congressional hearings in recent months.

    It is probably time for Fauci to retire and be replaced by someone that is competent. Given the lunacy and incompetence of the Biden regime, the U.S. might very well get someone worse than Fauci.

  4. hahahahaha why would anybody listen to these people at this point?

    This is just medical dictatorship.

    They can’t even get their story straight for a week without contradicting themselves, and that’s sort of the point.

    Psychological warfare uses humiliation rituals to mentally break the subjects.

    Your government has kidnapped you and now it’s saying maybe if you follow the rules, which they constantly change, they’ll give you your freedom back.

    But the history of totalitarian regimes shows that is not how it works.

    They don’t give up power once they take it.

    Totalitarian regimes have to be taken out.

    Whether it happens violently or non-violently is sort of up to them.

  5. Speaking of regimes, who are the top people pulling the strings in DC? Susan Rice? General Psaki? There is evidence that Biden does not run things. When someone from the regime lets him out for a tv presser or other event, he has said a number of times that he “Will get in trouble” for taking more questions or whatever. Getting in trouble strongly implies that he takes orders from one or more people.

  6. There is STILL no such thing as a virus – especially a made up one. Now they are making up variants and all the fools will be extra frightened. This will NEVER stop until you engage your brains! I told you more than a year and a half ago. TURN OFF YOUR TEEVEE! You are being brainwashed into committing suicide.
