Virus Outbreak Masks Biden

Vice President Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden smile and walk off after speaking about updated guidance on mask mandates, in the Rose Garden of the White House, Thursday, May 13, 2021, in Washington. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is easing mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated people, allowing them to stop wearing masks outdoors in crowds and in most indoor settings. The new guidance announced Thursday is a major step toward returning to pre-pandemic life. President Joe Biden calls it “a great day for America.” (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
