CDC Says Vaccinated People Don't Have to Wear Masks Outside

AllSides Summary

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated guidelines on Tuesday regarding mask-wearing amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The new "interim public health recommendations" say vaccinated people don't have to wear a mask outside unless in a crowded group of people; the CDC says vaccinated people should still avoid indoor large-sized in-person gatherings. Twenty-nine percent of Americans had been fully vaccinated as of Monday morning. News outlets on all sides covered the new guidelines prominently Tuesday; there were few notable differences in coverage.
