In an unexpected announcement on Thursday, the CDC announced new guidance on COVID-19 precautions: fully-vaccinated individuals can go maskless and forgo social distancing (in most settings). The surprise announcement comes as The New York Times reports that vaccination rates have slowed down with a 38% decrease in vaccinations per day when compared to mid-April rates. It is important to note: the new CDC guidance still recommends masks to be worn in healthcare settings, on public transportation, and in schools regardless of vaccination status.
What do you think about the newest guidance on COVID-19 protocol? If you’re vaccinated, will you still be wearing a mask?
