The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to recommend on Tuesday that people vaccinated against COVID-19 go back to wearing masks indoors under certain circumstances, according to The New York Times.

Those circumstances are unclear, but CBS reported that it will apply to places with “substantial or high transmission.” The expected change comes after a rise in reports of some breakthrough infections of the highly contagious delta variant. The CDC’s most recent advice contradicted that of the World Health Organization, which said everyone should continue to wear face masks in crowded areas.

US health officials met on Sunday night to review fresh evidence that may have prompted the recommendation, CNN reported.

The CDC didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
