The guidelines mostly match the recommendations already put forth by the CDC.
Still, there will be several situations where masks will still be required, even for people who are fully vaccinated.

Further, mask-wearing guidance remains in most of all public settings for people who are not vaccinated.
Along with the loosened guidance, Ghaly touched on some ways people may be required to show they are vaccinated. Individuals will be allowed to self-attest, however.
