The CDC's New Guideline Allows People To Go Outside Without A Mask


Today, the CDC updated their COVID-10 face-covering guidelines. They released more mask guidelines that some may consider too timid. Fully vaccinated individuals in the United States can now ditch the mask “sometimes.” You can now walk, jog, bike, and engage in a number of activities with a mask. But, of course, there are a few rules.

According to the Atlantic, the new guidelines come with charts that list specific activities and how a person should engage in them, based on their vaccination status. The charts show people with masks on and off during different situations. For, example someone within a restaurant with a mask on and if they are allowed to take their mask on in that setting.

The biggest question is, how will businesses operate with this new guideline. Will they have to let people in who don’t have a mask on. What if someone doesn’t have their vaccination card with them.

People are considered fully vaccinated by the CDC two weeks after the second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
