CDC Finally Announced That It's Okay for Fully Vaccinated People to Not Wear Masks

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a statement that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear face masks or stay six feet apart from others unless they're in a crowd. People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said, “Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, large or small, without wearing a mask or physical distancing.” But Walensky advised that unvaccinated people should continue wearing their face masks as they remain at risk of contracting and spreading the virus. And people with compromised immune systems should consult with their doctors before going maskless. CDC can still update its current guidelines when Covid worsens or changes. Because of the new guidelines released by the CDC, fully vaccinated people can now resume their activities before the pandemic maskless. They can now do the following do outdoor activities such as walking, running, or biking; and attend small outdoor gatherings with vaccinated family members and friends. Still, CDC continues to recommend that everyone should still avoid attending medium or large-size gatherings even with vaccinated people because the vaccines are not yet 100% effective at preventing the spread of the virus. It is still recommended for everyone to wear their masks when attending outdoor events like a live performance, parade, or sporting event; visiting the indoor salons, malls, churches, and museums; and riding public transport. Even if you've been fully vaccinated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still recommends following the guidelines mandated by the places you'll be visiting like your workplace and local businesses.

Remember to still take the necessary steps and precautions to protect yourself and others.
