President Biden hasn’t been following advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ditch his mask outdoors and around small groups of other vaccinated people because he’s taking “extra precautions,” a White House aide said Sunday.
“You know, we do take some extra precautions for him because he is the President of the United States,” said Anita Dunn, a senior advisor in the Biden administration, on CNN’s “State of the Union” when asked about why Biden “doesn’t seem to be following” the new guidance.

Dunn insisted that he takes health officials’ advice “very seriously.”
“I think the President takes the CDC guidelines very seriously, and he’s always taken his role as sending a signal to follow the science, very seriously as well,” she said.
