Do I need to wear a mask if I am vaccinated?

Fully vaccinated people (2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series [Pfizer or Moderna] or 2 weeks after a single dose vaccine [Johnson &Johnson]) can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

To reduce the risk of being infected with the Delta variant and possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.

You might choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission if you have a weakened immune system or if, because of your age or an underlying medical condition, you are at increased risk for severe disease, or if a member of your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently recommends schools continue to follow their school guidance, which includes masking and physical distancing.
