White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday that President Joe Biden would “certainly support” states re-imposing coronavirus restrictions.
A CBS News reporter asked Psaki if “the White House would reimpose” coronavirus “restrictions, as cases tick up, or is it up to the states?”
“We certainly support their decisions to implement measures that will make their community safe,” Psaki explained. “States and local communities will have to make evaluations about what is in their interest.”
“There are much higher rates of vaccination in some parts of the country versus others,” she continued. “We are at almost 70 percent vaccination rate for adults 27 and older but almost for adults 18 and older.”
