Recently the CDC updated their mask wearing guidance for fully vaccinated individuals. People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can “Resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”
