The US health authority has declared that those who receive the Covid-19 vaccine no longer need to worry about wearing a mask outside – but for those meeting in indoor public spaces, the restrictions remain in place.
The new guidance, issued on Tuesday by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), follows in the footsteps of the CDC’s previous mask-based health advice. Those initially argued that healthy individuals and those who were not wearing a mask should avoid everyone else.
Announcing the supposedly upbeat news, CDC director Rochelle Walensky on said that fully vaccinated Americans now can do some other outdoor activities, attend small outdoor gatherings, and dine in outdoor restaurants with friends from multiple households while not wearing a mask – even if some of the individuals present are not vaccinated.
