WILMINGTON, Del. — One of President Joe Biden’s top White House advisers suggested that he’s still wearing a mask outdoors out of habit although the latest public health guidance says he doesn’t need it.
Questioned about Biden’s practice, senior adviser Anita Dunn told CNN that she realized that she was also still wearing her mask outdoors even after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said fully vaccinated people like her and Biden can stop wearing masks outside when they’re alone or not among strangers.
“I myself found that I was still wearing my mask outdoors this week, because it has become such a matter of habit,” Dunn said. “He’s always taken his role as sending a signal to follow the science very seriously.”
