CDC: Fully vaccinated people can gather outdoors without masks

In an advisory released Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that people who are considered fully vaccinated do not need to wear masks outdoors. You are considered fully vaccinated if it has been at least two weeks since you have been inoculated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.


Even with this new development, the CDC still recommends fully vaccinated people to avoid or wear a mask for large gatherings, including sports stadiums and concerts. The agency still urges mask wearing in indoor spaces and gatherings.



In March, the CDC allowed fully vaccinated people to gather indoors without masks with others who also have been vaccinated, and those who are unvaccinated but are members of the same household. According to the CDC’s latest data, nearly 30-percent of the U.S. are considered fully vaccinated.
