The Washington Post is reporting tonight of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention slide presentation that sees the Delta variant acting differently than other variants, "leaping from target to target more swiftly than Ebola or the common cold."

The virus is evolving thanks to individuals who refuse to wear masks or be vaccinated. And as the virus changes, the CDC's recommendations change too.

The data and studies cited in the document played a key role in revamped recommendations that call for everyone — vaccinated or not — to wear masks indoors in public settings in certain circumstances, a federal health official said. That official told The Post that the data will be published in full on Friday. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky privately briefed members of Congress on Thursday, drawing on much of the material in the document.

One of the key changes is that the Delta variant can be transmitted by fully vaccinated individuals because of the much higher virus load of the variant.

So Pelosi, following the recommendation of the Office of the Attending Physician of Congress and CDC, released new guidance requiring House members and their staff to start wearing masks again in "indoor spaces."

The crazies -- AKA House republicans -- showed up without masks to protest the change and own the libs.

Because they're morons.

Bottom line: vax up, mask up (indoors).
