In the statement, CDC also said that “Over the last several weeks, more reported cases have fallen outside of the forecasted prediction intervals than expected. This suggests that current forecast prediction intervals may not capture the full range of uncertainty. Because of this, case forecasts for the coming weeks should be interpreted with caution.”
Therefore, the center is urging its citizens to strictly follow the rules, regulations, and mandates. A Covid appropriate behavior such as frequent sanitization, social distancing, and wearing masks should be observed in public. CDC also mentioned that if there is a constant increase in cases and hospitalization rates due to COVID then, the Biden administration may have to impose some mandates and regulations.

Other rules such as making it mandatory to wear masks in indoor public areas such as bars, restaurants, etc are being discussed with the authorities before implementing them across the US.
