Interesting, so if you’re vaccinated you STILL need to wear a mask? Instills confidence in the “vaccine” doesn’t it? Now, this map the CDC put out on July 27, 2021. However…
On July 28, 2021 (the very next day), the CDC stated (via The Epoch Times):
“The studies that prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to change their mask guidance for vaccinated persons are not available, a spokesperson told The Epoch Times on Wednesday.”
“They have not been published yet,” the spokesperson said.
“Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC’s director, told reporters on July 27 that she had seen “new scientific data from recent outbreak investigations” indicating the Delta variant of the virus that causes COVID-19 was presenting more uniquely than other strains.”
“Information from several states and other countries indicates that in rare occasions, some vaccinated people infected with the Delta variants after vaccination may be contagious and spread the virus to others,” she said.
Well this is a curious turn of events…the CDC by their own words has zip, zero, nada data to back up this “need” to wear masks again, especially if you’ve been “vaccinated”. BTW, Google “how many people have died from the Delta variant” – see what happens. Personally, I’ve done that twice now and have yet to receive an actual number. Another side note, the fact that Texas especially along the border is in red, does that have anything to do with the federal government releasing illegal aliens whom have tested positive for COVID-19? Read on my friends:

- The CDC now recommends that fully vaccinated people wear masks indoors in public in certain areas.
- A color-coded map of the US shows the zones where masks are recommended.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now recommending that fully vaccinated people put their masks back on when indoors in public , at least in the areas of the US where COVID-19 is spreading fastest.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said Tuesday that “the Delta variant behaves uniquely differently” compared with other versions of the virus and that vaccinated people “may be contagious and spread the virus to others.”
But the CDC isn’t recommending that everyone mask up again.
The agency’s new guidance is limited to places where COVID-19 transmission is deemed “substantial” or “high,” meaning there are either more than 50 cases per 100,000 people in the area, over a seven-day period, or the COVID-19 test positivity rate is higher than 5%.
(The one glaring exception to that rule is in K-12 schools nationwide, where the CDC is now recommending everyone mask up to protect kids and teachers .)
The main reason for the change in the CDC guidance is that, in areas where a lot of virus is circulating, the risk of getting infected, even for vaccinated people, is now very high. And while vaccination helps protect people from heading to the hospital or, eventually, dying from the disease, it is not a perfect shield against COVID-19 . Vaccinated people can get sick and prolong the pandemic too by spreading the virus .
“That’s why we are saying, in areas of substantial or high transmission, even if you are vaccinated, that we believe it’s important to wear a mask in those settings,” Walensky added.
“There are some people who are not able to be fully vaccinated, like children, and some people who are not able to be fully protected even though they are vaccinated, like immunocompromised people. So part of the reason for this guidance is to make sure that we can protect those [people].”
Mask guidelines, broken down by county
To find out whether you’re in a place where transmission is substantial or high, you can use the CDC’s COVID Data Tracker , which drills down to the county level.
Much of the US is seeing “substantial” (orange) or “high” (red) rates of transmission, where masks are now advised indoors. In the few pockets of “moderate” (yellow) and “low” (blue) zones, fully vaccinated people can go mask-free, according to the CDC.
Only three US states are entirely in red – Florida, Arkansas, and Louisiana – but Missouri and Mississippi are almost there, with only a few scarce orange, yellow, and blue counties.
Even in New York City, where more than 65% of adults are now fully vaccinated, transmission is in the red or orange zone in all five boroughs.
“It is not a welcome piece of news that masking is going to be a part of people’s lives who have already been vaccinated,” Walensky said, stressing that medical experts, when shown the data on Delta infections in the US, “have universally said that this required action.”
