*CDC Says Fully Vaccinated Do Not

Here’s another reason for adult residents of Mohave County to get a vaccination now while the providers have doses available:
Fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks outside according to updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued yesterday. About 29% of Americans have been fully vaccinated and more than 42% have received at least one dose. The new guidance from the CDC applies to fully vaccinated individuals, which health officials classify as two weeks after the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines and two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The CDC says fully vaccinated people can unmask while doing physical activities outdoors alone or with members of your household like walking, running, hiking or biking; Attending a small outdoor gathering either with fully vaccinated people or a mixture of vaccinated and unvaccinated people; dining at an outdoor restaurant with friends from multiple households.
However, the CDC also asks fully vaccinated people to wear masks in situations like crowded outdoor events like live performances, parades or sporting events; indoor spaces like a barber or hair salon or a movie theater; attending a full capacity service at a house of worship and/or singing in an indoor chorus.
