Issa Challenges Biden Administration to End Mask Mandates, Social Distancing for Vaccinated Americans

February 26, 2021

Washington, DC — Today, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) called on the Biden Administration to clarify guidance on the post-vaccination return to normalcy, stating in a letter:

“Insisting that Americans continue to socially distance, wear masks, avoid restaurants and even forego gathering with family following vaccination is nothing less than demoralizing to the nation.

Dr. Fauci is in the near-daily practice of issuing public statements across numerous media and broadcast outlets that amount to little more than unfocused guesswork and rank speculation. I do not believe that Dr. Fauci is any longer an effective public representative of the clear messaging that is needed.

It is essential that government officials speak with a consistent voice when it comes to offering Americans hope and return to normalcy as soon as possible.”

Issa also called on Congress to lead by example by displaying a return to normalcy in its daily operations.
