Vaccinated People Can Now Go Maskless, Even Indoors and in Crowds
The CDC relaxed its guidelines in most situations, though states and businesses can still set their own rules
If you’re fully vaccinated against COVID-19—meaning two weeks past your last dose—you don’t need to wear a mask or adhere to social distancing advice anymore in most situations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today.
“This is an exciting and powerful moment,” CDC director Rochelle R. Walensky, MD, said in a press briefing. “You can start doing the things you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.” Such activities include going to an indoor movie theater, working out at a gym, eating indoors at a restaurant, and attending a worship service.
