CDC Releases Update on Outdoor Masks

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released updated guidelines for those who have been fully vaccinated. It allows a relaxing of restrictions for both indoor and outdoor activities.

Gathering indoors with fully vaccinated people can be done without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart. Fully vaccinated people may gather or take part in outdoor activities without wearing a mask except in certain crowded settings and venues.

Gov. Gavin Newsom released a statement about the updated outdoor masking recommendations:

“California has made incredible progress in controlling the spread of COVID-19, resulting in the lowest positivity rate in the country. And we have administered more than 28 million vaccine doses including almost 6 million to those who live in our hardest-hit communities,” said Newsom. “After reviewing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s masking recommendations, and with science and data as our guide, we are moving to align California’s guidance with these common-sense updates. While more than half of Californians 16 and older are partially or fully vaccinated, many others are still not vaccinated, and the threat of variants remains. We need to remain vigilant and continue public health prevention measures – like wearing masks when appropriate and getting vaccinated.”
