The United State Centre for Drug Control and Prevention on Tuesday, April 29 released new guidelines stating activities the vaccinated can do with or without face mask outdoors and indoors. Being outdoors has always been the safest place from the novel Coronavirus because outdoor visits and activities pose minimal risk to fully vaccinated people themselves or to those around them, the CDC said.
The new guidelines give example that fit into the category of safest things you can do outdoors without a face mask or social distancing outdoors such as
- Exercising outdoors alone or with members of your household
- Attend a small, outdoor gathering with fully vaccinated family and friends
- Attend a small, outdoor gathering with fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people
- Dine at an outdoor restaurant with friends from multiple households.
The only outdoor activity listed on the CDC guidelines that requires a mask is when you attend a crowded, outdoor event, like a live performance, parade, or sports event you should be masked even if you’re fully vaccinated.
On the other hand, all indoor activities requires a mask. The following indoor activities are all considered low risk for fully vaccinated people, the CDC said, but only if you mask up properly.
- Visit a barber or hair salon
- Go to an uncrowded, indoor shopping center or museum
- Ride public transport with limited occupancy
- Go to an indoor movie theater
- Attend a full-capacity worship service
- Sing in an indoor chorus
- Eat at an indoor restaurant or bar
- Participate in an indoor, high intensity exercise class
- Attend a small, indoor gathering of fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people from multiple households.
In all indoor public settings, such as churches and hair salons, “fully vaccinated people should continue to protect themselves and others by wearing a well-fitted mask covering coughs and sneezes, wask, washing hands often nd following any applicable workplace or school guidance,” the CDC said.
The agency also emphasized that fully vaccinated people should be especially cautious if visiting anyone who is at high risk of developing severe Covid-19.
