People vaccinated against Covid-19 can go without masks indoors and outdoors, CDC says

And I’m sure that anti-maskers/vaxxers will comply with wearing a mask until they are vaccinated. (This just seems like a premature statement by the CDC. They may be following the science, but seem to be ignoring the psychology)

People fully vaccinated against Covid-19 do not need to wear masks or practice social distancing indoors or outdoors, except under certain circumstances, the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday.

“If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing the things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during a White House Covid-19 briefing. “We have all longed for this moment when we can get back to some sense of normalcy.”

Calling it an “exciting and powerful moment,” Walensky said the science supports the updated CDC guidance that “anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities — large or small — without wearing a mask or physical distancing.”
