The director of the National Institutes of Health told CNN on Tuesday that the delta variant of COVID-19 is capable of caution serious illness in children and gave some really strange advice to moms and dads:

“…They avoid being in places where they might get infected, which means recommendations of mask-wearing in schools and at home. Parents of unvaccinated kids should be thoughtful about this and the recommendation is to wear masks there as well. I know that’s uncomfortable, I know it seems weird, but it is the best way to protect your kids.

Dr. Francis Collins has tried to walk back his statement after he said his message was “garbled,” sort of.

“Vaccinated parents who live in communities with high COVID transmission rates should mask when out in public indoor settings to minimize risks to their unvaccinated kids. No need to mask at home.”
