Dr.  Fauci was on TV this morning, and said no need to wear masks outside if vaccinated and not in a crowd. 

 

The order that's supposed to be official sometime today is supposed to expand that so that, if vaccinated, there's no need to wear a mask inside in most circumstances either.

That just happened.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky detailed the announcement at a White House briefing.

"Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, large or small, without wearing a mask or physical distancing," she said. "If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing the things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

 

"We have all longed for this moment when we can get back to some sense of normalcy," she said.

The announcement comes after Walensky faced criticism for the CDC being too slow to provide a path back to normalcy for fully vaccinated people, over 117 million of whom are in the U.S. Walensky has defended the CDC's approach as scientifically-based to ensure protection not just for individuals but also the entire U.S. population.

Yes, I wonder if that clip from Dr. Fauci was from the other day? Anyway, happy with the new CDC guidance, hope they apply it to cruise ships!!!!!!

However, the CDC guidelines say masks still needed on modes of public transportation. So, it's unclear how this will impact cruise ships at this moment.

Apparently covid prefers to use public transportation.

Not quite sure what "except where required by federal, state, etc..." entails. From the CDC website:

Summary of Recent Changes

Updates as of May 13, 2021
  • Update that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance
  • Update that fully vaccinated people can refrain from testing following a known exposure unless they are residents or employees of a correctional or detention facility or a homeless shelter

Very true. I consider a cruise ship as more of a floating hotel/resort, hopefully they will too, nah what am I thinking.

I'm not listening to one word HE says.  Good enough the CDC says no mask inside OR outside for Vaxd.  That's how it's been here where we are for a couple weeks, no masks inside my Mother's day lunch, just servers.  But now it's official so we can relax.  There's no way cruise lines can be singled out without derision based on this new release.  But hey, if anybody wants to wear one go right ahead, I will not even smile!  Your perogative, but I'm NOT!

It will all be over by the time cruising actually resumes, except vac requirement for a few more months then that will disappear also.

So this means only young children will be required to test before departure, right?  IF you have your vax credentials....

Bite your tongue, I don't want to go through this again, I'm getting my vaccines every year like clock work.

Sooooo, do people now need to wear a badge, pin, sticker stating they’ve been vaccinated so everyone doesn’t flip out and play mask police.   Asking for a friend.

I was going to ask the same thing.  I guess I'll be carrying my vax card everywhere!

I think this is the exact reason you still have to wear a mask on public transportation. Human behavioral science, not medical science.

Here’s how I see it. Remove restrictions. For those that can’t or won’t get vaccinated, they need to protect themselves. If they choose not to, that’s the risk they take. I am tired of being in the same bubble as the unvaccinated. Millions have gotten the vaccinations , and we are ready to move on.

Ace will be sooooo disappointed! 😇  New campaign:  Masks for the after-life forever. 😷


I thought Ace said masks were going to be required forever........or May 13, 2021. 
 

I forget. It was definitely one of the two.

Interesting, you may have had Covid and not know it and spread it to 100 people. Nice!

I don't know about @ToroAzul, but I've made it my life's work to infect others with Covid as much as possible. After all, that's what refusing to wear a mask is all about, right Jimbo? 🤣
