The Centers for Disease Control is working on updating some COVID-19 guidelines, including mask-wearing.

This comes as a new poll shows the number of people wearing masks whenever they leave the house is down to 58% - the lowest point since last June.

Currently, some lawmakers are urging the CDC to rethink mask mandates.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins says conflicting guidance from the agency has undermined public confidence.
