Meanwhile, the CDC relaxed the rules when it comes to COVID-19.
The health agency dropped the recommendation for Americans to self-quarantine if they come into close contact with an infected person.
Health officials also said people no longer need to stay at least 6 feet away from others.
These changes came after the CDC estimated that 95% of Americans have acquired some level of immunity, either from being vaccinated or being infected.
