CDC Says Fully Vaccinated People Can Go Maskless in Most Places
"Increasingly tired of wearing that face mask. Possible. The extraordinary success we've had in vaccinated so many Americans so quickly today. We've given out 250 million shots in 114 days, The move comes is more than 100 million Americans have gotten at least one dose of the vaccine. Remember, those state and local governments have the final word on these rules, and nothing has changed across the D. M V Tonight. In terms of mask rules, CNN senior Health editor Maggie Fox spoke the W T O P. Shawn and Hillary a little earlier about how this came about. He has been under a lot of pressure from a lot of places to go. That people can do more once they're vaccinated as a way of encouraging people to get vaccinated. The CDC has been digging in its heels. But today, Dr Wolinsky, the director of the CDC, said that enough has happened to wear her agency feels comfortable in sort of changing the guidance and lightening it up, she says. That the number of cases have been dropping. There's been more vaccine, There's more people getting vaccinated. And she says the science has shown that the vaccines are very effective that they protect people against variants and, most importantly, that people who are vaccinated are not very likely to catch the virus and spread it to people who are unvaccinated. What the CDC saying is, If you're vaccinated, your safe and the people around, you are safe. So there's no more reason for you to have to wear a mask. A final thought for us as we approach the weekend and all of a sudden we find out. Maybe we can do some more stuff. Well, probably thought but again, it's up to your local jurisdiction to decide so the CDC does not set law president Biden said. We will not be enforcing this local jurisdictions. Specially probably here in the D C area are probably going to keep some of their restrictions on people and stores. Restaurants bars places like that are very likely to keep their restrictions because there's one big issue you can't tell who has been vaccinated, then senior health editor Maggie Thoughts

We have seen data and statistics is still across the country still broadly support background checks. I think it's about 80% of the American public support background checks, including a good percentage of gun owners support background checks. We've seen states take action, since that time, a number of states across the country of putting in place a number of laws. Sometimes states are the leaders as we know and we've seen in other areas of policy making. But I think the president who has been in public life and public office for 50 years, more than 50 years would be the first to tell you if he were standing here that just because you don't got the policy, making the legislation done the first time, it doesn't mean you quit trying and certainly tragedies like we saw earlier this week like we saw last week Mass shootings.
