US Mask Related Rules: There has been no change in the guidelines related to masks in America. The White House gave this information.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki emphasized on Thursday that decisions about public health are made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), not the White House. He said that if there is any change in the guidelines, the decision will be taken by the CDC.
Under the current guidelines, people who have been fully vaccinated need not wear a mask while those who have not been vaccinated should wear a mask.
