WASINGTON DC – The Centers For Disease Control said fully vaccinated individuals don’t need a mask, but in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts there are still rules for face coverings, even if you are fully vaccinated.

The Baker-Polito administration said it will be updating the Commonwealth’s face covering guidelines “in the near future.”

In the meantime, “the current mask order remains in place,” said the administration.

According to the CDC, fully vaccinated people can:

  • Resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance
  • Resume domestic travel and refrain from testing before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel
  • Refrain from testing before leaving the United States for international travel (unless required by the destination) and refrain from self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States
  • Refrain from testing following a known exposure, if asymptomatic, with some exceptions for specific settings
  • Refrain from quarantine following a known exposure if asymptomatic
  • Refrain from routine screening testing if feasible

For now, fully vaccinated people should continue to:

  • Get tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
  • Follow CDC and health department travel requirements and recommendations
