Axios reports that according to an internal CDC email the site received, the public health protection agency has a new policy to restrict what gets out to the public. “Effective immediately and until further notice, any and all correspondence with any member of the news media, regardless of the nature of the inquiry, must be cleared through CDC’s Atlanta Communications Office,” wrote CDC public affairs officer Jeffrey Lancashire. The impact of the new policy remains unclear.
