If you are fully vaccinated, the CDC said you can take your mask off at small outdoor gatherings, or when dining outside with friends from multiple households. The CDC was telling unvaccinated people that they still need to wear a mask at such gatherings.
But life has not returned completely to normal for fully vaccinated people.
According to the CDC, the publication of this new guideline is a first step to help people who have already received a shot to resume what they had stopped doing due to the pandemic, with low risk to themselves, although aware of the potential danger of transmitting the virus to others.
Furthermore, CDC added that it is up to people to assess their own personal situation and risk to themselves, their family and community before going out with no mask on.
