CDC says vaccinated people will no longer need masks for most activities

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised that fully vaccinated Americans can resume activities without wearing a mask or staying six feet apart from others, except where required by federal, state, and local law and businesses.

The CDC no longer recommends testing for vaccinated individuals before or after taking a trip.

The revised guidance comes as the percentage of Delaware residents getting at least one dose of vaccine nears the 50 percent mark.

Delaware is slated to sharply reduce Covid-19 related restrictions on May 21.

The change will include restaurants being able to position tables three feet apart rather than six.

The state still recommends the use of masks in crowded areas

The Delaware Restaurant Association quickly called for an immediate lifting of mask restrictions for customers who are vaccinated.

A message was sent to the office of Gov. John Carney seeking comment.
