Fully vaccinated can go mask-less outdoors per CDC

| April 28, 2021

Individuals who are fully vaccinated may be mask-less out doors, provided they are not among a large group of people. The CDC released new guidelines covering this change. Facemasks are still required in the presence of large crowds. Joe Biden used his announcement to encourage Americans to get vaccinated.

From The Post Millennial:

“I want to be absolutely clear, if you’re in a crowd, like a stadium or a conference, or a concert, you still need to wear a mask. Even if you’re outside. But beginning today,” he said, that you can go outside and picnic with friends who have also been vaccinated without a face mask.

He said that scientists are “convinced by the data that the odds of getting or giving the virus to others is very very low if you’ve both been fully vaccinated and out in the open air.”

Biden then encouraged everyone to get vaccinated so that they are able to take advantage of the opportunity to participate in the return to normal life.

Joe Biden previously mentioned something about being able to get with family on July 4 if enough Americans get vaccinated. The Post Millennial has the rest of the story here.

    Yeah, thanks CDC. We were all just sitting around waiting for you to make the call and “allow” us to live our lives.

    News flash: ½ the population doesn’t care what you say. And you may all eat a Bag of Dicks.

    It even has the reservoir tip…..

    But will Americans have enough gasoline to get to the July 4th?

    Where in the country are people actually wearing masks outside? It sure as hell ain’t around here. People grudgingly wear them indoors, but rip them off the second they clear the threshold on the way out.

      I’ve seen a few hypochondriac idiots. Not many, but a few. Haven’t seen anybody wearing multiple masks, though, so maybe there’s still some hope.

      • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

        I’ve seen a number of panic minions wearing a mask while driving alone which to me is akin to a male wearing a condom while sleeping alone!

      Well…according to the authorities (our government bureaucracy that can’t seem to eliminate the flu…aka CDC) you can be allowed (not your right) to remove your mask outdoors if you have been fully vaccinated, are registered, and remain completely isolated from others.
      Because the Global Warming activists need to fly in airplanes to spread the word it is also possible to board an airplane while maintaining social distancing and then sit next to one another for several hours in this enclosed space, and not have a higher chance of contracting this highly contagious virus (which may or not be airborne but sits on surfaces for hours) than people walking openly in public spaces where the wind blows and the sun shines! ’cause you know…science!

      There’s always a few. My personal favorite are the people who are in their own car wearing their mask, by themselves. Now, sure, if you’re a Uber/Lyft driver, I get it. But if you’re just going to the store in your own car, your inability to comprehend what is and isn’t risky is painful to the rest of us.

      As for the CDC, they’re doctors and they’re making suggestions for the whole country. If you’re in Manhattan, and walking down the street means you’ve got twenty people within 5 feet of you and damn near any moment, you’re gonna have a different experience than someone in Wyoming who hasn’t even seen another person in two hours. If any among you have a doctor who doesn’t always err on the side of safety (eat less meat, lose some weight, exercise more, drink more water, etc), even when you’re in good health, I’ll be shocked.

      They’re depressingly thick (in more ways than one) on the ground in Las Vegas.

      Here in Silly-con Valley; I see them all the time.

  5. OldManchu says:

    Haven’t worn one during this whole sham. Haven’t social distanced. Haven’t fist bumped. Haven’t stopped hugging folks (although I’ve gotten some recoil from the recipients). Not going to either. Have had to leave a few businesses because I’m not going to be a Karen or get arrested if I’m told to leave. But otherwise I conduct myself as if none of this ever happened.

  6. The Other Whitey says:

    Why, fuck you very much, Obergruppenführer Fauci! Fuck you very, very, very much!

  7. Ex-PH2 says:

    That fooci guys is shorter than I am. He’s carrying that vile disease, Short Man Syndrome, in his pocket and reveling in it. One of these days, he’ll find himself in a pickerel and wonder what happened.

  8. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Huh, the CDC just caught up with what I’ve been doing all along without the vaccine….

    I still see some fucktards wearing masks while alone in their cars…and recently some poor old woman was wearing a riot shield style face cover with a mask underneath and rubber gloves…someone in her family should grocery shop for her so she doesn’t die of fright out in public….

    The notion that someone can understand the virus could be serious for my fellow Americans while simultaneously being very concerned about yet another government intrusion into our basic liberties seems very foreign to the bulk of the public who prefer simple yes or no situations apparently….

  9. Forest Bondurant says:

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the current administration makes the assumption that all American’s continue to be a threat of spreading the virus, while not a word is spoken about the risk southern border “migrants” bring, who are probably positive for certain, with little or no protective measures taken.

    Just my .02 cents.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      It was never about a disease, it was always about power and control. That’s why Fauci’s goal posts move like a scared rabbit every time we get close.

      • Mason says:

        It’s really amazing how people have glorified Fauci. He’s clearly just making it up as he goes. He’s proof that medicine is not a science.

  10. I haven’t worn a mask outdoors since the china virus hit the US. Like other commenters, I see people in their cars wearing masks. Going into stores the mask is put on. The Florida Gov. just gave 2 more months of the china virus mask deal since the number of peeps who were run over by cars shot up died in fires jumped off of building and bridges killed by knives actually died from the china virus the hospitals claimed and these numbers dwindled after they got caught falsifying the cause of death.

    • rgr769 says:

      Ditto. I only put one on when required to do so to enter some retailer/business. Even my dentist says don’t bother when there are no other patients in his waiting room.

  11. Berliner says:

    From April 21: “High school coach calls on Oregon Health Authority and governor to reconsider mask mandate for distance runners”. They listened and changed the policy.

  12. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    Fauci and company keep changing their minds about this like a Hollywierd Debutante shopping for a new pair of high heels!
