Recent COVID-19 masking guidelines announced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, continue to generate a public conversation.

“The decision about masking needs to be nuanced,” says Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group. “Wearing a mask should be based on the risk of infection, the percentage of the population vaccinated, a person’s own immune system, and then the role of vaccine variants with the durability of our immune response.”

In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Poland discusses masking guidelines in further detail. Also, he offers an update on COVID-19 vaccine research for children, and he shares positive news about the decreasing numbers of COVID-19 cases and deaths.
