Earlier today, the CDC changed its mask guidance for those who are fully vaccinated, and now the White House has issued a statement in response.

Recently, The White House posted a message via Twitter about the new CDC guidelines. The image in the message from The White House reads “New CDC Guidance: Fully Vaccinated People Can Stop Wearing Masks.”

In the actual Tweet, the White House notes that if you’re fully vaccinated you don’t need to wear a mask indoors or outdoors in most settings according to the CDC.

Note that according to the CDC, an individual is considered to be “fully vaccinated” 2 weeks after they have received their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

  1. I 100% support Disney giving “wrist bands” to those who provide their vaccine documentation and letting them freely roam unmasked throughout the park. Those without the wrist band should continue to mask. (Ok, ok….I actually support lifting all mask mandates, but if not, this is the best idea.)

    1. I don’t see this working since the vaccines are still not given to those under 12. Maybe later in the summer or fall when the vaccines are approved for everybody. Still, there will be people who will try to fake a wristband when not vaccinated.
