Why are we still waiting? CDC has changed their guidelines!

As a sign language interpreter in a school system, these masks for staff have to go! So much communications happens on the face, whether it's expressions or the movement of our lips, which means our deaf kiddos have been missing out on SO MUCH! Even the face shields we're sometimes allowed to wear instead are still creating a barrier. We can't sign properly, the kids can't see our faces properly, and they are falling further and further behind. Since the CDC has now changed their own guidance, can you please skip this additional 30 day period and end this now?
