New COVID-19 mask guidance confuses vaccinated Americans

by News Update

In the U.S., new COVID-19 guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that allows fully vaccinated Americans to go maskless while indoors has sparked a sea of confusion.

More than a dozen states quickly embraced new federal guidelines that say fully COVID-19 vaccinated Americans no longer need to wear masks indoors or out in most cases. But other states and cities and some major businesses hesitated amid doubts about whether the approach is safe or even workable.

As many business owners pointed out, there is no easy way to determine who has been vaccinated and who hasn’t. And the new guidelines, issued Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, essentially work on the honour system, leaving it up to people to do the right thing.

As Jennifer Johnson reports, not everyone’s ready to trust the honour system.

Because it's all made up. The science doesn't support what they're saying or doing.

A lot of people in fear over nothing. Stop the insane mask wearing.

The CDC SHOULD have waited. We still at a high risk. Why put ok life's at risk. We need at least 70% of the country to be vaccinated before they implement their new rules of not masking.

I will continue to protect my life wearing my mask

Ronald DeSantis May 16, 2021 - 6:52 AM

Media is panicking about this. Vaccinated people wearing masks is simply unnecessary.

The rate of infection and death is higher in the US than in Canada. It may be still too early for them to go maskless.

Why worries about unvaccinated people if the vaccines protects the ones who were waccinated?

Do you know why it is confusing? Because the desease Never existed, never!!!!

THINK FIRST May 16, 2021 - 7:02 AM

Why would a vaccinated person be concerned about a non-vaccinated person? If they decide not to get vaccinated, they are taking their own risk.

It reminds me of all the karens saying they have a medical condition that says they can't wear one. They're definitely going to lie

Brad Lausen May 16, 2021 - 7:10 AM

I’d be more concerned of being around someone after they’ve been vaccinated you don’t know what they may have put into there body that could morph into something way worse than an imaginary pandemic with a 99.9 % chance of survival if you took the time to respect your body and took care of it .

Being vaccinated doesn’t stop transmission nor does it stop you from getting the flu again.
