Masks No More

Masks No More

Eli Kayser, Editor

The CDC has finally announced that fully vaccinated individuals no longer have to wear their masks in most instances. Obviously, this doesn’t apply in every instance, and people will be required to wear their masks in healthcare facilities and in certain businesses. The CDC does stress that individuals that are unvaccinated should continue to wear masks, since they are still susceptible to receiving the virus and spreading it onto others. The CDC has stated that the new guidelines align with new science.

Illinois will be entering Phase 5 on June 11th. This will put us back to normal, with no capacity limits anywhere. The state will also be following CDC guidelines, which now allow for fully vaccinated individuals to be maskless in most situations.

It is great to be back to normal after so long, and hopefully the next time that there is potential for a global pandemic, we will be more well-equipped to fight it.
