"A lot of it has to do with the percentage of people being vaccinated".

Some businesses are thinking about their mask requirements following new CDC guidance Thursday indicating those fully vaccinated can ditch masks in most cases.

"We serve millions of Americans every week and believe our policy of requiring associates and customers to wear masks in our stores has helped protect them during the pandemic, and we're not lifting those measures at this time", Walmart said in a statement. "That's how we've gotten to this day", Biden said Thursday.

An order signed by President Joe Biden also remains in effect requiring masks for domestic and global travel.

The new recommendation from the CDC also carves out exceptions for buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, situations in which all people, vaccinated or not, still need to wear face masks.

Orders for nursing homes and assisted living facilities will remain in place. "What you have done has truly worked", he said. When Ohio gets down to 50 cases per 100,000 people for two weeks, all health orders will be revoked, the governor said.

"I think as long as you are vaccinated, which we were, you should be able to take it off now", Chapman said. "The choice is yours". And since the CDC does not make laws, Americans still need to abide by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

Biden walked back into the White House following his speech without wearing a mask, and aides who had diligently worn N95s since the start of the administration in an effort to model good public health behavior began shedding them. Biden issued an executive order requiring mask-wearing on his first day in office; it remains in effect but its fine print tells agencies to follow CDC guidance. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and actress Jennifer Garner took their masks off during a trip to a high school in West Virginia following the announcement.

Citing the recent update regarding masks from the Center for Disease Control, the full operational update post from Hersheypark stated that "face coverings and social distancing for those who have been fully vaccinated will no longer be required when visiting Hersheypark". "Eventually everything will open up and we can be without masks".

The West Allis Farmers Market requires vendors to wear masks, and its website states masks are strongly recommended for customers. "Better days are ahead".
