On Tuesday, The CDC Announced Their Latest Updates On Masks & Indoor Public Spaces

The governor has yet to make an official announcement.

On Tuesday, the CDC has regulated that even fully vaccinated people should wear masks in indoor public places due to the high rise of the Delta variant that has led to more breakthrough cases.

Some states like Illinois and California have adopted the mandate, with many Los Angeles restaurants requiring masks indoors. While Charlotte is still carrying out vaccinations and is asking people to continue to get their vaccine, the CDC is pushing for masks indoors due to worry of “breakthrough” cases, in which vaccinated people can still catch the Delta strain and spread it to unvaccinated individuals. The good news about the vaccine is that it dramatically lowers the chance of hospitalization or serious illness.

Some are anticipating an announcement from Gov. Roy Cooper on these new mandates by the CDC, and the entertainment, arts & culture, and hospitality industry could be affected in the future.

 

While Gov. Cooper has not made any announcements regarding whether or not North Carolina will adopt these new policies, we’ll have to wait and see what happens as the weeks progress, and summer moves into fall.
