New guidance from the CDC says that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask, indoors or outdoors, or practice social distancing.
This marks the end of mask wearing. Vaccinated people will stop wearing masks, and un-vaccinated people will not wear them either. Businesses and organizations that required mask-wearing are soon going to face calls to drop their mask policies. Some states have eliminated the mask mandates and others will soon follow.
The vaccinated people will be able to return to normal life with little fear. The unvaccinated people will continue to go out and infect other unvaccinated people. And we can all just keep our fingers crossed that a mutation doesn't arise that somehow becomes vaccine-resistant.
Excellent summary, though I think there will still be places that will demand masks or proof of vaccinations, more the latter than the former.
And good luck to those who refuse to be vaccinated or wear masks - I hope someone keeps track of how many of them are infected in the future, which might persuade some of them to get their heads out of their asses and get the shots.
Meanwhile, the US will soon top 600,000 officially dead from Covid (and many more uncounted).
