Biden says Americans no longer need to wear a mask… if they are fully vaccinated.

(WTRF) President Joe Biden announced this afternoon on his Twitter page that Americans will no longer need to wear a mask if they are fully vaccinated.

He says “…the rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do.”

This comes on the heels of an announcement by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier today stating they will no longer recommend masks for fully-vaccinated Americans indoors or outdoors, including in crowds, according to sweeping new guidance announced today.
