According to the new CDC health and safety guidelines for COVID-19, any individual who has been fully vaccinated no longer needs to wear a mask whether indoors or outdoors.
In addition to the new mask protocols, fully vaccinated individuals will also be able to bypass social distancing procedures, except under certain circumstances where it is required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial law or regulation. Similarly, businesses and workplaces can still uphold their own protocols regarding COVID-19 regulations.
President Biden took to social media to share the news and to encourage those who have not yet gotten vaccinated to do so.
