Pennsylvania’s health secretary said Monday that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer have to wear a face mask in certain indoor situations, but still should wear one in public.
It marks a revision of Pennsylvania’s mask-wearing order issued Nov. 17 and is based on revised guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to the revised CDC guidelines, people who are fully vaccinated can resume:
Visiting with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or having to social distance; Visiting with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low-risk of COVID-19 complications without wearing masks or having to social distance. Also, people who are fully vaccinated no longer have to quarantine or get tested if they are exposed to someone with COVID-19 as long as they have no symptoms.
Acting Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Alison Beam said people who are fully vaccinated are “potentially” less likely to spread COVID-19, but more research is needed on how long their protection lasts and how well vaccine protects against variant strains. Therefore, “some prevention measures will continue to be in place for all people, regardless of their vaccination status,” Beam said.
Beam said fully vaccinated people should continue to wear face masks in public and use social distancing, avoid medium-sized and large gatherings and get tested if they feel symptoms.
It takes two doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to be fully vaccinated, and one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The she/he/it wanted the distinction of being the first in the nation a promulgate an order that people must mask up in their own homes.
It was unenforcebale and mostly ignored.
So this is none-news.
Please ping me with articles of interest.
FReepmail me to be added to the list.
Again, no guidance for those who have recovered from the Wuhan flu and have protective antibodies.
So magnanimous of government to grant rights to those they agree with politically
its all a FARCE....a big fat FARCE....
the elites do not practice social distancing nor masking....
we are compliant little mice....running thru the maze like they direct us...
Lol. Get out of Eastern PA and very few were ever wearing masks.
You really should post a picture of our former FLOTUS as eyewash.
This is exactly how it should have been from the start. The bold is mine to reflect the fact that all people under the age of 65 without comorbidities are at low risk of COVID-19 complications.
I have read many articles on the vaccine and have never seen any claim that being fully vaccinated makes a person immune from the C-virus, nor does it make a person less likely to be contagious or contract the virus. What it claims to do is protect a person from having a bad outcome ( a severe case requiring hospitalization or even death).
Protective antibodies only last for a short while and are not a substitute for 95+% effectiveness of the vaccines.
But don’t take this.scientist word for it the New England Journal of Medicines got it covered.
Israel found only a 6 to 12 times increase after the vaccines vs just having it.
How would you know if I am fully vaccinated? Even if I am I am not carrying papaers and showing them to anyone. Not anyone business!The Democrat haven’t turned American into Nazi German yet. Trying I know but not there yet!
Mask for life? NOOOO....THAT’s a double bagger at least
TTIBOWOP. (This thread is better-off without pictures)
Are they wearing some sort of patch on their sleeve to show they were vaccinated?
Many other countries are issuing Vaccine Passports that citizens must carry and show if challenged.
Plastic bag mask with no holes to keep the virus out. It’s the only safe way.
Probably a yellow star, or maybe even a red armband depending on the country.
