Yesterday the CDC released changes with their recommendations on fully vaccinated individuals. See guidance here. Fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
However, this does not apply to healthcare settings including assisted living facilities (Silveridge) and nursing facilities (Eventide). Although our desire is to have these types of settings included, we realize the public recommendation will be eased first and we shall follow at the appropriate time. These are Federal and State mandates our organization must follow. The focus of hope is to bring as much normal back to everyone as soon as we safely can.
