The US makes the use of face masks more flexible in those who have already been vaccinated


- Advertisment -

It was later that the CDC said that those who received the two doses or the single dose depending on the case can participate in activities even indoors without wearing a mask or respecting physical distance. But the mask must be used for transportation.

Those who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus in the United States will no longer be required to wear masks or maintain a physical distance from other people, the country’s main federal public health agency said on Thursday.

“Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in activities indoors and outdoors, small or large, without wearing a mask or (respecting) physical distance,” said Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing the things you stopped doing because of the pandemic,” he added in a briefing at the White House.

The new CDC guidance, however, maintains the recommendation that vaccinated people continue to wear face masks when traveling on public transportation (airplanes, buses, trains) as well as at airports and railway stations.

“We’ve all longed for this moment, when we could get back to a sense of normalcy,” Walensky said.

Currently, about 35% of the US population, more than 117 million people, have already been vaccinated.

The decision was made in light of scientific studies showing that the vaccines are effective even against asymptomatic infections and circulating variants, he explained.

He also highlighted the fact that the few people who were infected with Covid-19 despite being vaccinated turned out to be less contagious.

Fully vaccinated international travelers arriving in the US must still get tested within three days of their flight, or show documentation of Covid-19 recovery in the last three months.

Walensky further noted that immunosuppressed people should speak with their doctor before putting off the mask. Immunosuppressed people have been shown to respond less well to vaccines.

The head of the CDC warned anyway that this new recommendation is subject to change if the situation worsens.
