Did CDC guidance change regarding who needs to wear a mask?

Yes. Originally, the CDC recommended all individuals 2 years of age and above wear a mask but due to new research showing the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines, the CDC now states that those fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask.

What does it mean to be Fully Vaccinated? 

People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccines
  • 2 weeks after their single dose of Johnson & Johnson

Should children under 12 and unvaccinated people still wear masks?

Yes. People who are not vaccinated should still wear a mask to protect themselves and others from COVID-19. This includes children ages 2 and above.

Are there any groups that should still wear a mask even when fully vaccinated?

Yes. Individuals who are immunocompromised or taking medicines that suppress the immune system are still encouraged to wear masks as they may not be fully protected even when fully vaccinated.

Are there any locations where people should continue to wear a mask?

Yes. In healthcare settings, such as hospitals and doctor offices, in school settings and on public transportation, such as buses and planes, individuals should still wear their mask. Individuals should also still wear a mask where required by federal, state, local, tribal or territorial laws, rules and regulations.
