The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention Director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, and President Joe Biden made the surprise announcement on Thursday, that all Americans who had been vaccinated against the COVID 19 Pandemic, no longer needed to wear masks and social distance in public and in private.
It stunned many, as many Americans are not yet vaccinated, and many do not plan to be vaccinated, so while an emotional moment, one wondered whether the announcement was a wise move.
Many businesses and companies are choosing to continue a mask mandate, and it is still required in circumstances of public transportation, including planes, buses, and trains.
But the concern is that the pandemic may come roaring back, so it is unclear whether the sudden statement may be reckless, but in any case, anyone can still use masks, but it does seem as no longer can it be required or mandated.
It will certainly be great for Americans to get back to normal social interactions, as it has nearly 15 months of this health crisis!
