The CDC Dropped New Guidelines For Gathering in Groups - What It Means For You

  The CDC Dropped New Guidelines For Gathering in Groups - What It Means For You The CDC released a new set of COVID-19 guidelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated people, and one of the biggest changes has to do with group gatherings. According to the CDC, fully vaccinated people are defined as people who have been vaccinated with both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, for two weeks.

WASHINGTON — A U.S. lawmaker who has made a political crusade out of getting the border with Canada reopened is once again pressing his case with President Joe Biden.

New York Rep. Brian Higgins has written to Biden again, this time to argue that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control is proving his point.

Yesterday, the CDC declared that fully vaccinated people need no longer wear face masks in nearly all situations, including indoors.

Higgins says that decision affirms the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and what he calls the "minimal risk" Americans would pose to Canadians when visiting family or property.

He says Canada has made "steady progress" in its vaccination efforts and praised Biden for sending 1.5 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine north.

He also says the U.S. can and should share more of its vaccine supply.
