CDC Director Robert Redfield responds to the AP report on the leaked CDC guidelines

The AP report claims that CDC " Guidance for Implementing the Opening Up America Again Framework"  was buried at the highest level by the White House officials. The trove of emails AP refers to in the story shows that the work by CDC officials has been "quashed by political appointees with little explanation".

CDC Director Robert Redfield made the following comment in response to the AP report about the leaked CDC guidelines.

“The re-opening guidance shared prematurely was in draft form and had not been vetted through the interagency review process. This is an iterative effort to ensure effective, clear guidance is presented to the American people. I had not seen a version of the guidance incorporating interagency and task force input and therefore was not yet comfortable releasing a final work product,” he said.

The Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany went to twitter to say that "CDC guidelines were in the editing process" and she criticized "some members of the press who ran with inaccurate and dramatic headlines".
