County of San Diego says no masks required in most outdoor settings for fully vaccinated people

County of San Diego says no masks required in most outdoor settings for fully vaccinated people

Fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks outdoors in public unless they’re in crowded places.

This is one of many activities the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now considers safer for people who are fully immunized.

The state has adopted the new CDC mask guidelines and the County is also easing the same restrictions in the region.

“Outdoor activities are deemed the safest, especially for people who are fully vaccinated,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “In addition to protecting yourself and others from COVID-19, getting vaccinated allows you to be in public, dine outdoor with friends and attend small gatherings without having to wear a mask.”

Masks are still necessary in crowded outdoor events and indoor activities, whether you’re vaccinated or not.
