In the United States, masks are no longer needed outdoors.Still need to carry one indoors
Washington-An important step before the pandemic, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relaxed regulations on the use of outdoor masks for fully vaccinated people who use the Cocos-19 vaccine, so that people can stay out of the crowd. Wear a sanitary mask in open spaces and in most cases closed areas.
The new guidelines still require the use of masks in crowded indoor environments, such as buses, airplanes, hospitals, prisons, and homeless shelters, but it will help clear and reopen workplaces, schools and other enclosed spaces It even eliminates the need for people who wear sanitary masks or fully vaccinated to stay away from the body.
Rochelle Varensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said: “We are all looking forward to this moment, when we can return to normal.”
The announcement comes as the CDC and President Joe Biden’s government are under pressure to relax restrictions on people who have received full Covid-19 vaccination-the Covid-19 vaccine is in the last required dose The crowd that has passed two weeks after vaccination-partly emphasizes the benefits of shooting. The country’s aggressive vaccination campaign has paid off: the number of coronavirus cases in the United States is at its lowest level since September last year, the number of deaths is the lowest since April, and the positive test rate is the highest. Pandemic.
Valensky announced the new guidelines at a briefing held at the White House yesterday afternoon, pointing out that this change is because millions of people have been vaccinated and based on the latest scientific information about the effectiveness of their vaccines.
Varensky said: “Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor or outdoor activities, no matter how big or small, without wearing a mask or being physically alienated.” “If they get adequate vaccinations, they can start doing things due to the pandemic. And stop doing things.”
However, the advertisement may cause confusion because there is no foolproof way to know who has been fully vaccinated. Varensky said that those who have not been fully vaccinated should continue to wear masks outdoors.
To date, approximately 154 million Americans, 46% of the total population, have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, and more than 117 million people have received full vaccination. This rate has slowed in recent weeks, but with Pfizer’s approval of a vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds on Wednesday, it is expected to surge again in the coming days.
