WASHINGTON DC – Individuals who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear a face covering outdoors, with a few exceptions, announced the U.S. Centers For Disease Control today.

If you are walking, running, hiking or biking alone or with members of your own household, and vaccinated, you do not need to wear a face covering, said the CDC.

The federal agency did not say individuals could stop wearing their face coverings altogether in outdoor settings, even if fully vaccinated.

The CDC is still worried about the transmission of COVID-19 with individuals not vaccinated.

Early evidence also suggests that vaccinated people may be significantly less likely to transmit the virus, but the exact risks are not yet known.
