CDC Updates Mask Guidelines

CDC Updates Mask Guidelines

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guideline for people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, saying they can forgo their masks and social distancing in many indoor settings.

“Today, CDC is updating our guidance for fully vaccinated people,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Thursday at a White House COVID-19 briefing. “Anyone who is fully vaccinated, can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, large or small, without wearing a mask or physical distancing. If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing the things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.” Walensky warned that people who are vaccinated but develop symptoms should still mask up and get tested.

She also said that there are instances where vaccinated people will still need to wear masks. Those include health-care settings, businesses that requires them, planes, trains, and more.

A federal rule that requires that all air, rail and bus travelers over the age of 2 to wear a mask is still in effect, the Transportation Security Administration said Thursday. They are also required in stations and airports. That policy was recently extended until September 14. Airlines have indicated they will continue to require passengers to wear masks, as long as it is mandated by the federal government.
