The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated guidance Friday by repealing, with small exceptions, the recommendation for people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear face masks. It was not put into practice, among other things, by the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.

Anyone who has been fully vaccinated can go in and out and participate in large or small events without wearing a mask or maintaining social distancing. If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing the things you stopped doing due to the pandemic, Rochelle Wallinsky, White House chief executive of the CDC, said Thursday, adding that you should wait two weeks after taking your last dose.

She pointed out the need to wear masks in narrow, crowded places, such as buses, airplanes, and other public transport, as well as hospitals, prisons and shelters for the homeless. However, she encouraged people with weakened immune systems, such as organ transplantation or cancer treatments, to speak to their doctors before throwing off their masks.

On Friday, Walinsky completed her remarks. She urged volunteers who had symptoms of the Coronavirus to wear face masks and undergo examination. And she warned that there are always fears of a worsening epidemic and that it will be necessary to return to previous restrictions. The CDC indicated that people who have been fully vaccinated should continue to wear face masks as and when required by federal, state, or local laws, as well as by companies. The head of the CDC, citing research, said that, for example, at concerts, people who are not fully vaccinated, if they do not have masks, are not protected. She encouraged them to get vaccinated, cover their faces and maintain social distancing.

Pelosi does not conform to the CDC’s guidelines

Not everyone agrees with CDC guidelines. Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the US House of Representatives, has announced that lawmakers will still be required to wear masks indoors. I justified this by not knowing the number of vaccinations actually from them.

Nor is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ready to adopt the federal guidelines. He said he had not made his decision yet in consultation with Health Commissioner Howard Zucker. We have received revised guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on wearing masks and social distancing for vaccinated people and are reviewing them in consultation with Dr. Explained Como Zucker, our partners and health experts in neighboring states.

Fully vaccinated people are allowed to stay abroad without face masks in New York state, according to an order announced last month. They still need to be worn indoors, even if someone takes COVID-19 preparations.
