The CDC Just Deleted Its Guidance that Said Coronavirus Spreads Through Air - 2020-09-21
UPDATE 9/21 12:42 pm ET: The CDC has removed language from its website indicating that coronavirus can spread through aerosol particles. The agency said that it mistakenly published the change Monday morning, according to CNBC. The information had been online since Friday.
"A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency's official website," the CDC now says on the page where the new guidance was originally published. "CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the update language will be posted."
