CDC updates guidance

Wisconsinites waiting for guidance to return to pre-pandemic life got big news on Thursday. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention changed their guidelines on Thursday and will no longer advise fully-vaccinated citizens in America to wear face-coverings in most indoor or outdoor spaces. Guidance still suggests mask use in buildings like hospitals, prisons, homeless shelters and transportation like buses and planes. However, the new guidance is aimed toward assisting in further opening schools, workplaces, and other venues. 


CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a press briefing that anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities without masking or physically distancing. She added that people can start doing things they stopped doing before the pandemic. Walensky also credited the vaccination process and recent science for the change in guidance.
