When You’ve Lost Susan Collins… Slams CDC for ‘conflicting, confusing’ guidance, says she’s lost respect for agency

Republican Sen. Susan Collins on Tuesday said she “used to” have the “utmost respect” for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, but she doesn’t “anymore,” saying “conflicting, confusing” guidance from the agency is undermining “public confidence.”

Republican Sen. Susan Collins on Tuesday said she “used to” have the “utmost respect” for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, but she doesn’t “anymore,” saying “conflicting, confusing” guidance from the agency is undermining “public confidence.”

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky testified before the Senate Health Committee on Tuesday, amid criticism from Republicans over what measures and restrictions are still necessary to protect the public against the novel coronavirus as more and more Americans become vaccinated.

Collins, R-Maine, on Tuesday grilled Walensky on “conflicting” guidance related to school reopenings, wearing masks outside, and summer camps.

“I used to have the utmost respect for the guidance from the CDC. I always considered the CDC to be the gold standard. I don’t anymore,” Collins said, giving examples where she said she thinks “the conflicting, confusing guidance from your agency has undermined public confidence and contradicts the scientific guidance of many experts.”
