On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced new guidelines regarding mask use while outdoors for both vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans.

According to the CDC, fully vaccinated Americans no longer need to wear masks while outdoors, unless they are in a crowded area. In addition to these new guidelines, unvaccinated Americans can also stop wearing masks outside in certain situations.

The latest CDC guidelines state that those who have been fully vaccinated can now:

  • gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart.
  • gather indoors with unvaccinated people of any age from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks or staying 6 feet apart, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
  • gather or conduct activities outdoors without wearing a mask except in certain crowded settings and venues.

In addition, the CDC added that "If you travel in the United States, you do not need to get tested before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel."

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the updated guidance Tuesday in yet another carefully calibrated step on the road back to normal from the coronavirus outbreak that has killed over 570,000 people in U.S.," reported The Washington Post, adding that "The CDC, which has been cautious in its guidance during the crisis, essentially endorsed what many Americans have already been doing over the past several weeks."

According to CNN, "If you're fully vaccinated, the CDC says you can now take your mask off at small outdoor gatherings, or when dining outside with friends from multiple households. The CDC is telling unvaccinated people that they still need to wear a mask at such gatherings."

According to the latest CDC guidance, people are considered "fully vaccinated" either "2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines," or "2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine."

Current CDC guidance on masks states that "A mask is NOT a substitute for social distancing. Masks should still be worn in addition to staying at least 6 feet apart, especially when indoors around people who don't live in your household," adding that "Masks may not be necessary when you are outside by yourself away from others, or with people who live in your household. However, some areas may have mask mandates while out in public, so please check the rules in your local area (such as in your city, county, or state). Additionally, check whether any federal mask mandates apply to where you will be going."

Earlier today, CBS News reported that updated guidelines from the federal government would be announced, with Secretary of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, joining to discuss the new guidance.

Are you saying that if you are wearing a mask due to the possibility that you may be infected and not know it, to prevent others such as your spouse, your children, your parents and grandparents, your best friends, from being infected with the virus that has a potential to kill limits your freedom?  How about wearing a necktie - does that limit your freedom?  How about wearing socks, or a MAGA cap?  Shouldn't not wanting to kill anyone be more important than your god-given rights and freedoms?

You know what I'm saying. The fucking CDC finally said it yesterday - if you've been vaccinated you can now venture outside without the damn mask.

So as of yesterday the CDC finally said the vaccine means something.

It hasn’t meant much whenever Dr. Fauci appears in front of Congress. The man has been fully vaccinated. He’s sitting in a hearing room with people who - since they are members of Congress or work for them - I expect are fully vaccinated, and he’s sitting at a table 20 feet away from anybody, and the guy is wearing not one, but two masks. Stunts like that send the message that vaccines don’t do anything.

My sister was fully vaccinated.  She tested positive last Friday. 

Now her daughter has also tested positive. 

People at her work are having to be tested and go through quarantine. 

She went to a play area with field sports and various party games, because she was vaccinated she did not wear a mask.  They also have been notified and the other people present at that time are also needing to be quarantined and tested.

Because she was vaccinated, she was non-symptomatic.  She felt comfortable taking her mask off in places that she would have kept it on if she weren't vaccinated.

You can still contract the virus if vaccinated, but it’s a lot harder. However, even if you do, you shouldn’t get very sick. Her daughter can be positive, but you don’t know she got if from her mom.

“...people really don't care unless something actually affects them or their loved ones.”

...and in these surreal times, not even loved ones. Last fall, at the height of the crisis, we cautiously drove back to Colorado to celebrate my mother-in-laws 85th birthday. mrs. r.t..b... was nearing the end of chemo treatments and her mom had diabetes and was on oxygen for COPD. Two people at the highest risk of infection.

We requested an outdoor gathering with limited contact and masks all around. They all deferred.  Since then, we are the family pariahs, even though mom died in February of COVID after getting infected over the holidays from any of the three other siblings, all of whom contracted the virus.
Trying to repair relationships while still in mourning is just another casualty of the callousness some continue to exhibit.

The effects of this pandemic will last generations.

Wow Sorry to hear this. So unfortunate that everyone was not on the same page as far as protecting the most vulnerable. 

Yea I would be having a hard time repairing any relationship like that myself. 

I have a nephew that I kind of put some blame on for my own brothers death. He did some stuff I'm sure helped lead up to his death.

I do not talk with him at all now and haven't for years. In large part because the man is a habitual liar.

He lied to me and my brothers wife keeping us apart after my brothers death to avoid any blame for what he had done as well. 

I don't see us ever having a relationship ever again. 

He is not worth it.

Correct, but you are just as contagious as those without the vaccine.  Masks don't really protect you, they protect those around you.

Then you are not listening to them very well.  If you catch COVID, you are just as able to give to someone else as someone who has not been vaccinated.  The vaccine does not effect how contagious you are once infected, only your ability to contract the disease.

I have not seen science that supports that idea and that is the opposite of what scientists are saying:

Can I still spread the coronavirus after I’m vaccinated?

Experts think the vaccine would also curb the chances of those people spreading the virus.

“A vaccinated person controls the virus better, so the chances of transmitting will be greatly reduced,” said Dr. Robert Gallo a virus expert at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

Among the evidence so far: Studies suggesting if people do get infected despite vaccination, they harbor less coronavirus in the nose than the unvaccinated. That makes it harder to spread.

If you have been vaccinated, you are not  “just as contagious as those without the vaccine.”

I will admit that I could be wrong, but you're evidence has not shown that as fact.  Provide studies to prove it and I will fully admit it.  Otherwise all you have are they "think", and it "might", and studies "suggest".  Nothing definitive to show facts.

I like the AP news at times, but if they are going talk about studies, they need to link to those studies, or at the very least name them and the institution that is doing the studies.

You're joking? You made a declarative statement that a vaccinated person is just as contagious as those who have not been vaccinated. You offered zero evidence for it. Zero. But you want me to provide you with studies?

Otherwise all you have are they "think", and it "might", and studies "suggest".  

All I have? They aren't my words. They are the words of doctors who are virus experts. It's a hell of a lot more than you have.

Nothing definitive to show facts.

Nothing definitive? A virus expert is quoted as saying:

“A vaccinated person controls the virus better, so the chances of transmitting will be greatly reduced,”

There is nothing equivocal about that. And here is your fact and your studies:

Studies suggesting if people do get infected despite vaccination, they harbor less coronavirus in the nose than the unvaccinated. I like the AP news at times

I'm sorry, but you are really going to dismiss what you have learned today by implying that the AP is an unreliable source? You cannot be taken seriously.

I never wore a mask outside unless I was having a discussion with someone face to face.  To me it seems obvious that contracting COVID is a function of what viral load you are exposed too.  Inhaling a few microbes from a jogger passing by is not going to cause an infection.  Repeatedly inhaling the exhalations of the infectious stranger at the next table in the restaurant will.  It is a disservice to the population to pretend otherwise.

There's really no point to wearing a mask once you've been fully vaccinated. It's safety theatre.  The risk to the vaccinated or anyone else is microscopic. The problem is many people don't understand risk and are easily frightened. After vaccination, masks serve as sort of like child safety blankets  to some.
