Vaccinated Americans can now remove masks outdoors: CDC
Health officials say fully vaccinated individuals can now walk, socialise or dine outdoors without having to wear a mask.
Fully vaccinated people in the United States can now safely go out in public without having to wear a mask, unless they are attending a crowded venue, health officials announced on Tuesday.
In newly updated guidelines the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said fully vaccinated Americans can walk, bike, socialise or dine in an outdoor restaurant without having to wear a mask.
The update marks a change since the CDC had been advising Americans to wear masks when outdoors since last year.
