Bannister Wolfe: Today is a good day In America. Most mask mandates are now being removed for fully vaccinated people. With this news comes just a little bit of caution. And to explain, here’s Doctor Puja, Chief Medical Officer of Think Healthy.
Dr. Puja: Hi Bannister, howdy! So the CDC guidelines for masking are now very clear. If you’re vaccinated then you don’t need to wear a mask when outside.
What I want all the people listening to know is that if you have a weak immune system or if you’ve had any type of a transplant in the past, you’re still at risk! You still need to wear a mask.
So, why should you care when you’re out and about and you see somebody wearing a mask? Don’t correct their behaviors. Let them wear the mask because you’d never know if they have some underlying condition that requires them to wear a mask. Enjoy the outside, & be kind!
