President Joe Biden on Thursday released updated federal guidelines for fully vaccinated populations, along with an update on the pandemic. People who are full vaccinated against Coronavirus Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), announced during a COVID-19 briefing at the White House Thursday that they are not required to wear masks indoors, outdoors, in large or small gatherings.
“The CDC says they found that fully vaccinated people have a very, very little risk of developing COVID-19,” Biden said. “So when you are fully vaccinated, you no longer have to wear a mask.”
“Get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do,” the president later added.

Fully vaccinated people are still advised to stay in crowded indoor spaces, e.g. B. in public transport as well as in hospitals, prisons and shelters for the homeless to wear masks. Unvaccinated populations who have not received any shots are advised to mask to protect themselves and those around them.
“As great as this announcement is today, we don’t want to give up. We all know how tough this virus was,” said Biden. “The safest thing for the country is that everyone gets vaccinated.”
The president’s comments follow an expanded FDA clearance clearing Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 12 and older, followed by the CDC on Wednesday.
