BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you needed a reason to get vaccinated, this is it. The CDC says you no longer need to wear a mask if you are fully vaccinated with Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
Those who are not vaccinated are being encouarged to continue wearing masks as you could still get sick and die.
It is not immediately clear what this means for supermarkets, stores, office buildings and more. Schools continue to mandate masks — although that could change quickly in Palm Beach County. The mask mandate continues on airplanes and is expected to for some time. The CDC said there is no current plan to rescind that order. Without a workable vaccine passport, there is no way to determine who is vaccinated and who is not.
We remind readers that most kids are not vaccinated, so that becomes a factor in most group settings.
This is a developing story. We will continue to update with local ramifications as we learn more.
