New directive unmasks the fully vaccinated | Serving Minden-Gardnerville and Carson Valley

New directive unmasks the fully vaccinated | Serving Minden-Gardnerville and Carson Valley”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday that fully vaccinated people could go without a mask in most settings, even indoors in large crowds, in what was a key milestone in the USA path out of the pandemic. "Eventually everything will open up and we can be without masks".

But just because the CDC says that it is safe, does not mean that everyone in New Jersey feels comfortable taking off their masks - even if they are fully vaccinated.

The new recommendation from the CDC also carves out exceptions for buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, situations in which all people, vaccinated or not, still need to wear face masks.

"If there are some businesses, for example grocery stores or coffee shops, that require for you to wear a mask, you must abide by the rule", Agarwal says. In general, the American Constitution Society said, courts uphold states' rights to enforce their own face mask mandate or get rid of it, as they see fit. Agencies should follow current CDC guidance, a White House official said, when asked about the order. "We have all longed for this moment where we can get back to some sense of normalcy", Rochelle Walensky, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said at a press conference.

Joe Biden said it was 'a great day for America'.

The White House Correspondents' Association sent an email to members on Thursday saying that the mask-wearing requirements for reporters on the White House grounds were immediately lifted for those fully vaccinated.

'Based on the continuing downward trajectory of cases, the scientific data on the performance of our vaccines and our understanding of how the virus spreads that moment has come for those who are fully vaccinated'.

Vaccine supply problems in the US have eased, and it is easier than ever to get a shot, with many sites no longer needing to require appointments for doses.

The Biden administration will begin updating its guidance for travel and other sectors - likely further relaxing rules across the USA after largely lifting its mask mandate for vaccinated people.

"That's why the CDC and others are still requiring those in healthcare facilities to wear masks", he said.

It's also worth noting the guidance isn't necessarily permanent.
