CDC’s unofficial admission: The mandates were pointless


For all the people who were fired, laid off, forced to work at home or part time, or who were punished or bullied for wearing or not wearing a mask, or not getting a Covid vaccination, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has some new guidelines for you.

According to the CDC:

  • Those exposed to Covid-19 no longer need to quarantine.
  • Unvaccinated people may follow the same guidance as vaccinated people
  • Students can stay in class even after being exposed to Covid-19
  • There is no need to screen people who do not have Covid-19 symptoms.

Since 2020, the United States went from a nationwide lockdown, when commercial air traffic came to nearly a halt, to everyone being required to wear masks indoors, to forced vaccinations on huge segments of the population to this: Don’t pick on people who don’t wear masks and don’t want to get an experimental shot, and quit forcing people to take Covid tests.

The complete set of K-12 school guidelines, issued just five days before students return to school in Alaska, can be seen here.

The CDC says “Schools and ECE programs should consider flexible, non-punitive policies and practices to support individuals who choose to wear masks regardless of the Covid-19 Community Level.”

While not defining what the terms are for “flexible non-punitive policies and practices” the CDC is also unclear as to whether it’s really saying “don’t pick on people who wear masks” or “don’t pick on people who don’t wear masks.”

The CDC says, “Wearing a well-fitting mask or respirator consistently and correctly reduces the risk of spreading the virus that causes Covid-19.” It still recommends forced indoor masking “at a high Covid-19 Community Level” and “in healthcare settings, including school nurses’ offices, regardless of the current Covid-19 Community Level.”

And the CDC left the door open for local districts to enact forced masking at school during some activities, “to protect students with immunocompromising conditions or other conditions that increase their risk for getting very sick with Covid-19 in accordance with applicable federal, state, or local laws and policies.”

The information seems contradictory at best: Don’t bully people who wear masks, and force masks on students if your community is going through a Covid surge.

The CDC said, in announcing its new guidelines, that “COVID-19 continues to circulate globally, however, with so many tools available to us for reducing COVID-19 severity, there is significantly less risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death compared to earlier in the pandemic.

“We’re in a stronger place today as a nation, with more tools—like vaccination, boosters, and treatments—to protect ourselves, and our communities, from severe illness from COVID-19,” said Greta Massetti, PhD, MPH, MMWR author. “We also have a better understanding of how to protect people from being exposed to the virus, like wearing high-quality masks, testing, and improved ventilation.  This guidance acknowledges that the pandemic is not over, but also helps us move to a point where COVID-19 no longer severely disrupts our daily lives.”

The CDC insists that vaccination is an important way to protect against serious illness, hospitalization, and death. “Protection provided by the current vaccine against symptomatic infection and transmission is less than that against severe disease and diminishes over time, especially against the currently circulating variants. For this reason, it is important to stay up to date, especially as new vaccines become available,” the agency says.

The CDC recommends that instead of quarantining if you are exposed to Covid, you should wear a high-quality mask for 10 days and get tested on Day 5.

The agency recommends you isolate for five days if you have Covid, or if you are sick and suspect you have Covid. But if your results are negative, there is no need to isolate.

Regardless of when you end isolation, avoid being around people who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 until at least day 11.

You should wear a high-quality mask through day 10.

The CDC says that if you have moderate illness (if you experience shortness of breath or had difficulty breathing) or severe illness you need to isolate through day 10.

Those who get severely ill or have a weakened immune system should consult a doctor before ending isolation.


  1. Would it be feasible to get a copy of the CDC’s corporate license/permission to do any business whatsoever as is lawfully required in Alaska which is several thousand miles from the headquarters? Thanx Juneau for standing up to defend our rights from these marauders obeying Switzerland personalities. DID YOU GET A BUFFET OF CHOCOLATES FOR YOUR WORK?

  2. I’m not impressed, given the agencies over 10,000 employees and a budget of over $15 billion. Finally some guidelines after years of rubber stamping actions desired by the administration and the teachers unions. And I didn’t see much information about research into possible treatments, although they came out against any one else doing any testing.

  3. Shameful esspecially with pushing a toxic vaccine, many people have died or have been injured and to this day many more are dying and damages are still occuring. Some people are going to prison for a long, long time.

  4. Enough of dem exposed clowns. Shepherds Chanel 256 on dish. Listen to some Devine knowledge that will help us ALL. Suzanne downing 24-7 do you ever rest ma’am?? Team integrity.

  5. When you confront these left-winger Democrats about the masks, lockdowns, and vaccinations for Covid …….they say, “oh we didn’t know that the mandates were pointless.”
    When the truth finally comes out about the stolen election of 2020, they will say the same thing …..
    “oh we didn’t know.”

    • How about compensation for those of us who had to get a shot we didn’t want to keep our jobs?

  6. The first week every single Republican bought this lie. You will fall for whatever comes across that TV next. The Communists have already taken over so all we can do is just tell you how stupid and drop shot all of y’all were for blocking the patriots. You can now see with your own eyes that you are being destroyed and you still block the Patriots you stupid bitch.. now our children have no future because you bought a lie that you could have easily looked up or even listened to me for just a few minutes.. you were worried about looking awkward. You going to look awkward when you’re starving like a f****** Ethiopian

  7. No. I believe this trickery is budgeted by the UN to end 3/31/ 25. So make your financial plans accordingly I guess. I wonder what they have purposed next. I believe they are a cabal of devout religionists, not Christians but devout practicets of their very old worship of Baal and so forth. It is their intention to remove most of human life and control (that’s putting it conservatively and nicely) whomever remains. The next thing will be delimiting caloric intake of remaining Americans. Unfortunately Americans have allowed anti-America indoctrination of their children so long we will have difficulty stopping this socialist train in its tracks.

  8. As far as I’m concerned, the CDC has lost credibility with me. It’s gonna take a long time for them to retrieve that status again with me. All thru the covid pandemic it was ‘you gotta do this today’ and then it was ‘ya gotta do this today’ the next day. One shot, two shots, now a booster shot and then a second booster. Just how many boosters are needed now? I haven’t taken one jab and don’t ever intend to. When will we ever begin to think that the CDC is giving us credible information again about anything? Anything at all. Now it’s monkeypox. And they’re even getting a shot for your kids!!! Just when are they gonna get a shot for stupidity? The CDC should be the first ones mandated for that jab!!!! Or get fired!! Like they did for the covid jab.

  9. The mandates were not “pointless”. Most were just worthless against the virus. The “point” in continuing to mandate the measures, especially after the biological realities became obvious, was that they were still in charge, they were doing something, even if it was wrong (a basic and critical tenet of government), and they had the power to make you conform. None of that is new. Indeed, it is to be expected.

  10. First of all, most of the mandates and shutdowns were put in place because of panic. When everyone is seeing videos supposedly snuck out of China of people collapsing in the street, or apartment buildings having their doors welded shut, one is going to think this virus is actually an extinction level event. It did not help that the “model” used to predict the sick and dead was based on bad math.
    So… yeah. Extreme measures.
    Where the CDC, Fauci, Birx. Zink, and the Anchorage assembly lost all credibility was about the time it became apparent this virus was no where near as deadly as the CCP tried to make it look, yet they continued to seek out ways to keep the panic in full swing.
    After is was demonstrated, by numerous studies, that mandates did nothing to slow or stop the spread, they continued to push them. After it was clear that only properly worn N95 or better masks had only a small effect at best, note the operative phrase is “properly worn” not N95, they continued to demand masking.
    When it was OK to attend a BLM riot/loot, but not OK to attend a political rally, it destroyed their credibility.
    Next time a pandemic rolls around (about every six years or so), they will try the “it’s the end of the world, PANIC!” thing again. And, I certainly hope the public has learned their lesson, and they toss the idiots pushing ineffective economy destroying mandates right into the sea.

  11. So why do “health experts” like Dr. Zink in Alaska, who fervently followed the CDC’s advice, still have a job. Start firing these charlatans! In a just world some of them should be criminally prosecuted

  12. There is not one federal institution that has, or is worthy of, the trust and faith of the majority of the American people.

  13. I knew all this in the spring of 2020. Your best defense is proper diet, vigorous exercise several days a week, quality sleep (this is not always possible), and stay hydrated. I’ve had COVID twice, not vaccinated, and recovered each time in a few days. Monkey Pox is not a concern because I live a boring lifestyle.

  14. In my opinion, Dr.Fauci needs to be fired and face consequences for his botched money making policies on the health of all Americans. He always refers to Science when it fits his vaccine mandate. However, Science has always suggested that natural immunity is as good or better than vaccine induced immunity. Not for him, he dictated that even if you had covid you needed to be vaccinated. Even as recently as Aug 3. 2022 in Health and Wellness article. he says if you aren’t up to date on covid vaccines, you are going to get in trouble.
    Fauci and Dr Collins even got Biden mimicking his “immunity conferred by vaccines is preferred to natural immunity. ” Wouldn’t we like to know how much money lined their pockets on the backs of Americans. Congratulations to those who had Covid and recovered in a few days

  15. That’s the most ambiguous apology I’ve ever heard. It leaves the door wide open for the next coming round. But how do you really apologize for wrecking our country? They still can’t even admit that they were wrong, and for those that kept saying follow the science, try doing the math instead. It is always definitive, whereas science is mostly theory. And can be slanted, for political and financial purposes. If you want to know what the weather is, try looking outside instead of looking at a computer model. And if you want a new disease, ask the Chinese. They have been helping us out since the spruce bark beatle, which is now blamed on global warming.

  16. Children’s Health Defense [RFK Jr’s group] published this article on 8/12/22:

    “CDC Drops Quarantine, Distancing Recommendations, as 1.3 Million COVID Vaccine Injuries Reported to VAERS”

    “VAERS data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show 1,379,438 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID-19 vaccines, including 30,162 deaths and 251,075 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020, and Aug. 5, 2022.

  17. The article should read the CDC is pointless. Just another three-letter agency that is not American. They are as useless as the whole covid scamdemic.

  18. This is unreal. They tell people to to get the shot, and over 30 thousand people do it and die, and now they’re going to tell us that it was all pointless? Somebody needs to go to jail pronto. Probably lots of people should be going to jail over this. What incompetence!!! What idiocy!!! This is criminal!!! The folks who created this horror, should be in jail immediately!!! These were people’s lives!!! Dear God…

  19. The CDC is just a tool of the Democrats and Global elites. They’re worthless and god help us if we ever are stricken by a real and deadly virus or disease.
