As of Tuesday, around 142 million Americans, or 43% of the adult US population, have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, according to data from the US CDC.

More than 96 million people in the US, or 29% of the adult US population, have been fully vaccinated.

As efforts to curb COVID-19 infections and symptoms continue, the CDC communicated a series of new guidelines and recommendations on Tuesday. 

“Fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask outdoors, except in certain crowded settings and venues,” the public health agency detailed, just weeks after declaring that fully vaccinated Americans could resume travel at “low risk.” 

As for fully vaccinated employees, those who have been exposed to the novel coronavirus “no longer need to be restricted from work,” so long as the employee is “asymptomatic.”    

“Fully vaccinated residents of non-healthcare congregate settings no longer need to quarantine following a known exposure”

the CDC said.

The agency also released infographics on face mask guidance for both “unvaccinated people” and “fully vaccinated people.”

Additionally, the agency reported that those with a weakened immune system should consult their doctor before adopting the new guidelines.  

Naturally, many Americans were critical of the CDC’s updated guidance — but for different reasons. 

A number of individuals online expressed confusion and skepticism concerning the change in recommendations. 

New CDC mask guidelines are a hostage negotiation to demand you get a COVID vax. Ppl who continually abided by these guidelines have surrendered virtually all of their liberties & got nothing in return.

Full disclosure: I haven’t worn a mask outdoors ever. Glad the CDC is finally telling me that’s okay to do. Wouldn’t know what to do without them.

CDC only mentions “vaccinated” people being able to go about mask-less, but gives absolutely NO guidelines for those who ACTUALLY HAD THE VIRUS, AND NOW HAVE THE ANTIBODIES THAT ARE “HOPED” FOR -FOR THOSE WHO GOT THE “VACCINE.”

On the other hand, netizens who appeared to support the Biden administration and the CDC expressed they would continue to wear don face masks when outside to ensure optimal protection. 

Unless I am comepletely alone, I’m still going to mask up.

Nope, I am fully vaccinated but don’t trust anyone else. Don’t know where they are coming from, whether or not they have been vaccinated. Bad move #CDC. So, I am good with my mask on. It is not bothering me one bit. I will keep wearing it until herd immunity has been reached.

I also like the feeling of anonymity in a public place. 😎➕😷➕🧢=me slipping by undisturbed.

That’s great! I’m still going to wear my mask because cold/flu/allergies are still a thing and people are dirty.
