CDC Announces New Mask Guidelines

By Net Assets posted 04-30-2021 08:59 AM


(From CNN) The CDC issued new guidance Tuesday, saying fully vaccinated people can unmask at small outdoor gatherings or when dining outside with friends from multiple households — activities the CDC said require unvaccinated people to still wear a mask. The CDC says both vaccinated and unvaccinated people should wear masks in indoor public spaces, like malls, movie theaters or museums. "Although these vaccines are extremely effective, we know that the virus spreads very well indoors," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during the briefing. "Until more people are vaccinated and while we still have more than 50,000 cases a day, mask use indoors will provide extra protection." Currently, about 43% of the US population has received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose, CDC data shows and more than 29% of the population is fully vaccinated.
