The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a statement regarding speculation that the agency would reimplement mask mandates.
A CDC spokesperson told The Epoch Times Tuesday that the agency doesn’t have any mandate in effect, and the “CDC’s advice for individual and community actions around COVID-19 are tied to hospital admission levels.”
“Anyone may choose to wear a mask in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor areas, including on public transportation and in transportation hubs at any time,” the CDC spokesperson said, per The Epoch Times.

Earlier this week, a CDC spokesperson told NBC News that there have been no agency discussions about bringing back mask mandates, which comes as a handful of hospitals and offices around the country started reimposing them this month. There has also been speculation that federal officials may bring back mandates or even push for lockdowns, similar to what happened in 2020.Advertisement
At the same time, the CDC hasn’t issued any updated guidelines regarding mask mandates on its website.
The CDC’s response comes after Infowars’ Alex Jones said two federal agents warned him about the gradual return of COVID-19 restrictions.
Masks allegedly will return in mid-September with the masking of TSA employees.
“Masks will reportedly return for travelers in October, and full COVID restrictions and lockdowns will return by December due to a new ‘dangerous variant’ from Canada,” WLTReport stated.
Jones said he met with a high-level TSA manager who cited a Tuesday meeting, where the agency’s managers learned of new memorandums and policies to reinstitute masking.
The TSA whistleblower allegedly alerted Infowars and said ‘you gotta warn people.’
“We’ve been told this is going to happen,” Jones said the whistleblower told him.
After meeting with the TSA whistleblower, Jones said he contacted one of his federal connections at Border Patrol, who confirmed the whistleblower’s warning.
“Expect COVID protocols to begin rolling out middle of September and I said ‘what else were you told’” Jones said.
“Basically that they believe this new variant is super bad and that they’re doing the testing and they should just get ready for a whole new rollout of what happened before,” Jones said.
“That’s two federal agents that told me this,” Jones commented.

The TSA official also said next week they will receive new guidelines on how the policy will escalate: by mid-October, mask-wearing will be required by pilots, flight staff, passengers, and airport patrons.
After hearing from the TSA manager, Infowars reached out to our trusted Border Patrol source who is also a manager. This source confirmed the same directives were being given to Border Patrol.
They were told it was not a matter of “if” but “when” official Covid numbers will go back up and they expect by mid-October a return to forced-masking policies that the Biden administration previously only reluctantly ended after massive pressure.
Both whistleblowers were told this rollout will be in tandem with the new Covid “variant” hysteria that the MSM has been reporting on this week.
A TSA spokesperson reportedly told The Epoch Times those claims are false.
Cont. from The Epoch Times via Zero Hedge:
However, a spokesperson for the TSA told The Epoch Times on Aug. 25 that those claims are false and that the agency “does not have any new requirements and there has not been any meeting on the topic.”Advertisement
While the “TSA has authority to impose mask-related requirements to implement mask orders from the CDC related to transportation systems,” the “TSA is not imposing mask-related requirements at this time,” the agency stated.
Benjamin Haynes, a spokesperson for the CDC, told The Associated Press at about the same time that reports of upcoming lockdowns are “utterly false.”
