Biden Administration COVID rumor I guess this is fifth hand information so I will title it as a rumor. My son has a friend who is married. His wife has a sister who works for the White House chief of staff.
According to that sister, the Biden Administration is worried about the midterm elections (go figure). They don't want COVID to be another headwind. They fear that the GOP will continue to hammer that Democrats are the party that wants to lock us down. They realize that people are fed up with COVID restrictions. They also realize that nothing works against Omicron spread and everybody has figured that out. Finally, they realize Omicron COVID will burn out quickly.
Future White House messaging, therefor, will be to gradually send out more optimistic statements on how the pandemic is progressing and not issuing any more government mandates.
I read that the CDC head, Walensky, is to be the COVID message bearer and that she has been working with media experts. Her recent statements have been more positive.
