The rollout for the COVID-19 vaccine has found many in the United States taking the jab, with the hopes of the nation getting back to normal.

Now, the CDC has changed their guidelines for COVID-19, noting that fully vaccinated Americans no longer need to wear a mask outdoors unless they are among a large group of people. Joe Biden spoke on the new guidelines, saying:


It was noted by the CDC that fully vaccinated people could go outdoors safely without a mask when dining at outdoor restaurants with people from other households. However, they also noted that non-vaccinated people face a risk with the activity and should keep a mask on as much as possible when they dine outdoors. The CDC did recommend that people still wear a mask for other activities, even if they are fully vaccinated. This includes people who attend indoor gyms, outdoor sports events, concerts, and fully-packed indoor religious services.
