The Freedom of Being Vaccinated
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention eased its guidelines on wearing face masks outdoors and Gov. Gavin Newsom tweeted, “If you’re fully vaccinated, outdoors, and not in a large crowd — you do not need to wear a mask.”
CA will be aligning with the new CDC guidelines.
If you're fully vaccinated, outdoors, and not in a large crowd — you do not need to wear a mask.
We've administered 29+ million vaccines & have the lowest positivity rate and case rate in the nation.
Let's do this. Vax up, CA!!

There are, however, quite a few caveats.
One of the best things about relaxing guidelines for vaccinated people is that it’s a great way to encourage more people to get vaccinated.
After a year of sticks, it’s nice to see some carrots out there.
