The CDC had the ‘vaccinated ‘ people part in its recommendation….
Governor’s actually make the rules….
Each day more and more it appears that for some?
They vaccinated part doesn’t matter…
This has been in the works as governor’s rush to reopen their states with virus numbers dropping to the low single digits for the last several months…
Even vaccine numbers are dropping…..
It seems that America wants to rush to the ‘all clear’…..
Around my way?
People STILL wear their masks…
Gonna take a while for them to stop….
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, lifted his state’s indoor mask mandate for fully vaccinated people effective Saturday at 12 a.m. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, announced he was lifting the mandate for everyone effective Saturday, though masks are still “strongly recommended” for unvaccinated people.
The moves came a day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is safe for fully vaccinated people to go maskless in any type of group gathering, indoors or outdoors. Close to 60 percent of American adults have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine and President Joe Biden has set a goal for 70 percent of American adults to get at least one dose by July 4.
Northam also announced that the state will lift all of its social distancing and capacity limitations May 28, and Hogan had announced earlier in the week that Maryland was lifting capacity restrictions Saturday. Businesses can still require masks, and the states will have exceptions for public transportation, health care facilities and schools.
“Virginians have been doing the right thing, and we’re seeing the results,” Northam said in a video on Twitter. “The vaccines are clearly working and they are saving lives.”
“Today is the day that so many of us have been waiting for and working toward,” Hogan said. “We finally do clearly see the light at the end of that tunnel.”
Also in the region, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said Thursday that “we are immediately reviewing the CDC guidance and will update DC Health guidance accordingly.”
Costco and Walmart, which both have locations in the area and nationwide, also moved Friday to lift their mask mandates for fully vaccinated people.
In regions with no mask requirements, Costco will now allow customers that have been fully vaccinated to shop without a mask and won’t require any proof of vaccination….
Will there be a typical fall/winter resurgence of virus cases as virus’s tend to do?
Is it coincidence that this CDC call came out right after the report that people where NOT in a rush to go back to work and shot numbers keep declining?
