WASHINGTON, Feb 26 (Reuters) - The head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday that a recent decline in COVID-19 cases may be stalling, a development she described as concerning while urging that restrictions to fight the virus remain in place.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky told reporters the CDC was watching the concerning data closely.
The White House on Friday also urged companies to join efforts to help fight the pandemic by requiring mask wearing by employees and educating customers.

St Paul's is honored to have four panelists this Sunday to begin to address the many and complex questions many of you are asking. Please join us for this important conversation.
