One of the most waited announcements came from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CDC recently announced that fully vaccinated people, including adolescents, no longer need to wear masks in most situations.
CDC says people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
Fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a face mask or stay 6 feet away from others in most settings, whether outdoors or indoors, the DC announced.
You will still be required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. That policy is set to expire on September 14.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told reporters that unvaccinated people should still continue to wear masks, adding they remain at risk of mild or severe illness, death, and risk of spreading the disease to others. People with compromised immune systems should speak with their doctor before giving up their masks.
She added there is always a chance the CDC could change its guidance again if the Covid pandemic worsens or additional variants emerge.
