Post Vaccine: New Masking Dos and Don'ts
This information has been reviewed and approved by Infection Preventionist Rosine Angbanzan, MPH (May 2021).
If you are fully vaccinated, you can now go without a mask for most activities. In May, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
Regardless of your vaccine status, find out when masks need to be worn.
