No need for a mask if you’ve been vaccinated. That comes straight from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, which has relaxed COVID-19 restrictions for inoculated individuals.
Per the CDC, it is safe to gather without masks or social distancing in smaller groups, while continuing to take “precaution” in most circumstances.
That makes sense. Given that we’re still in the early stages of vaccination, it’s not known whether it will completely eradicate the virus or if people can still get infected and transmit it to others.
“But early research suggests that in addition to protecting against severe cases of COVID-19 that could lead to hospitalization or death, authorized vaccines likely also make people less vulnerable to infection and potentially less likely to spread the virus, the CDC said,” The Wall Street Journal reported.
Texas, Mississippi, Iowa, North Dakota and Montana have already dropped mask mandates, and more states are sure to soon follow suit. Eleven states never required face coverings statewide — Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee.
With the vaccine beginning to become more readily available, we may be able to see our wide smiles about it all across the country very soon.

I’m glad we have the CDC to treat us like little children. What a country of idiots we’ve become.
people get paid for those observations—-how about you can kiss my dirty lil mask.
Texas resident—when gov abbott declared state open beginning 0001hrs on the 9th you would think he was killing lil puppies and kittens according to the left.
Fellow Texas resident and it’s an absolute tragicomedy seeing wokesters lose their minds over NOT being forced to wear a mask. Then again, this whole mask mandate gave their weak/wack/social media tough asses a false sense of power.
can’t wait for the Fauci book on all of this stuff. i hear that Cuomo did the foreword for Fauci’s book.
80 year old dude making $400k plus from taxpayers and royalties on books he has cowritten or touched with his God Like Fingers.
People don’t need masks to gather together. Period. And it’s not a vaccine. It’s gene therapy. I will take my chances that I’m not 1 of the 100,000 who die if I get it.
Exactly the headline needed to mandate vaccinations for all.
F*ck that bs…
How is it possible that people believe the media – that lies to them everyday – on this issue??
How exactly will they know who has had it and who hasn’t?
And, if I am in a gathering of vaxxers, but I am not vaxxed, isn’t it my choice whether to mask or not? Since they are no longer in danger, and I do not believe it is dangerous to me, what difference does it make?
We also didn’t need to wear masks during the middle of the removing Trump virus.
States that did not require masks suffered no higher infection rate than those that did, they were almost identical. Also the high use of masks (self-reported) did nothing to slow or stop the spike in cases in the fall and winter. That data is from the CDC. Conclusion? Masks do nothing to stop the virus. Put another way, the virus gonna virus.
I think I get why Texas and other states booted the mask mandates now. They knew this type of scary government micromanagement was coming, so they wanted to neutralize it before it started by removing the control lever: masks. As completely useless and ridiculous as they are, masks are a powerful control. You can hear governments all over the world starting this chant to restrict travel unless you are vaccinated with unproven vaccines. That’s a scary precedent and is more about control than public health. This type of “Nanny State Healthcare” overreach can get out of control and turn into a tool of tyranny fast if we aren’t careful.
