AP - The nation’s top health agency is expected to backpedal on some of its masking guidelines and recommend that even vaccinated people wear masks indoors in parts of the U.S. where the coronavirus is surging.

That's according to a federal official. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to release the data. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to make an announcement later Tuesday.
