This was the first weekend Americans were given the green light from the CDC to go without a mask if they were fully vaccinated.
Dr. Ashish Jha, Dean of Brown University School of Public Health, appeared on ABC Good Morning America recommended waiting to lift the new guidelines until more Americans are vaccinated.
I think states should hold until 6/15 to lift indoor mask mandates— Ashish K. Jha, MD, MPH (@ashishkjha) May 17, 2021
Is it because fully vaccinated folks are at risk if they go maskless?
Do vaccinated people spread the virus? Not really
So why? and why 6/15?
Mainly because of when vaccines became available
Dr. Anthony Fauci agreed with the new updates and said the CDC is trying to keep up with new data.
