The CDC guidelines state that fully-vaccinated individuals do not have to wear masks in most indoor settings, except on public transit, in health care facilities, and in congregate settings.
Businesses retain the ability to require masks in their establishments.
Employees who work in certain business sectors—including restaurants, retail, fitness, personal care, and entertainment—must continue to wear masks unless fully vaccinated, per CDC guidance.
Those who are unvaccinated or not fully-vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear masks in all settings.
