One year into the pandemic, and Americans are desperately seeking an answer to the following question:
When can we stop wearing face masks?
As of March 29, 2021, over 51 million Americans (15% of our population) have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
Thanks to this rising number, we’re getting closer and closer to the day when we can all finally say goodbye to masks.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean that this day will be soon, or even this year.
What the experts are saying
We hate to break it to you, but health experts like Dr. Fauci predict that we may have to continue wearing masks well into 2022.
This is in part due to the new strains that keep popping up, as well as the push to return to normalcy too soon.
The new variants of COVID-19 are said to be more contagious and less resistant to treatments and vaccines, making the need for masks even more critical than before.
If we want to continue opening back up the U.S., it’s going to come with a compromise: masks.
Can I stop wearing a mask if I’m fully vaccinated?
The CDC recently released a statement announcing that fully vaccinated people can visit each other indoors without the need for masks.
Fully vaccinated people can also visit unvaccinated people from a single household without wearing a mask, so long as said people are not at high risk for contracting a severe case of COVID-19.
But when it comes to visiting public spaces like the grocery store, everyone will still need to wear a mask–regardless of whether they’ve been vaccinated or not.
