CDC: Masks not necessary in most places for the vaccinated


The move is expected to spur more Americans to get the jabs.

CDC: Masks not necessary in most places for the vaccinated

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 can now go without masks and social distancing in most places.

The New York Times reports that the guidance pertains to most indoor and outdoor settings regardless of the size of the group. The limitations are that mask and social distancing precautions remain when visiting doctors, hospitals or long-term care facilities. They also remain when traveling by bus, plane, train, or other public transportation, as well as when at airports, bus stations, prisons, jails, or homeless shelters.

The CDC says that the vaccinated should still abide by existing state, local, or tribal laws and regulations, as well as following rules for businesses and workplaces, the Times reports.
