Today the Centers For Disease Control issued a proclamation that many have been waiting for:
If you have received your full vaccination (ie two shots and the time for them to take effect) you may be maskless both inside and outside.
This is HUGE news and a HUGE change and if you’d like to read more about it, check out this article by Elizabeth Cohen and John Bonifield and presented on CNN:
People vaccinated against Covid-19 can go without masks indoors and outdoors, CDC says
From the article:
People fully vaccinated against Covid-19 do not need to wear masks or practice social distancing indoors or outdoors, except under certain circumstances, the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday.
What are the circumstances where one should continue wearing a mask?
Again from the article:
…people who are immune compromised should speak with their doctors before giving up their masks.
The requirement to wear masks during travel — on buses, trains, planes and public transportation — still stands
Regardless. we’re one step closer to normalcy.
Get your vaccinations, people!
