No More Masking?

No More Masking?

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its COVID-19 guidance on wearing masks. On May 13, 2021, the CDC announced that “fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”1

Additionally, the CDC stated that people who have received COVID-19 vaccinations and are “fully vaccinated” are now allowed to:

  • Resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance
  • Resume domestic travel and refrain from testing before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel
  • Refrain from testing before leaving the United States for international travel (unless required by the destination) and refrain from self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States
  • Refrain from testing following a known exposure, if asymptomatic, with some exceptions for specific settings
  • Refrain from quarantine following a known exposure if asymptomatic
  • Refrain from routine screening testing if feasible1

Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, large or small, without wearing a mask or physical distancing,” CDC director Rochelle Walensky, MD said, “If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing the things you had stopped because of the pandemic. We have all longed for this moment, when we can get back to some sense of normalcy.”2

The Unvaccinated Should Still Mask Up

The new CDC guidance does not apply to those who have not gotten two doses of the experimental mRNA Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna/NIAID biologics, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. Dr. Walensky said that unvaccinated people should continue to wear masks, pointing out that she believes they are still at risk for mild and severe COVID-19-related illness and death, as well as able to spread the SARS-CoV02 virus to others. But she acknowledged the new guidance for her agency may have little effect on “anyone not inclined to wear masks in the past.”3

However, these two assumptions by CDC officials about the COVID-19 vaccine protecting against infection and transmission of SARS-CoV-2 may not necessarily be accurate. The first one assumes vaccination is the only way to lower or eliminate one’s susceptibility to COVID-19 symptoms. This is a controversial topic, because numerous studies have been published suggesting there are alternatives to vaccination for preventing COVID-19.5 6 7 8 9 10

How Protected Are Fully Vaccinated People?

According to the CDC, “The science is clear: If you are fully vaccinated, you are protected, and you can start doing the things that you stopped doing because of the pandemic.”11 Here again, there is some controversy, and so the validity of the assumption is open to question.

There have been plenty of cases of people, who have been “fully vaccinated” in terms of receiving one two doses of COVID vaccine, who have tested positive for COVID-19 when they thought they were immune. In an article published last month in The Vaccine Reaction, Carolyn Hendler noted, for example, that in the state of Washington alone, there have been at least 100 so-called “breakthrough” cases of fully vaccinated people coming down with COVID-19. Eight of those cases resulted in hospitalizations and there were two deaths.12

Hendler added:

Similar breakthrough COVID-19 cases have been reported in Minnesota, Oregon, Nebraska, Idaho, Michigan and Florida among other states. There were 89 breakthrough cases among healthcare workers reported in Minnesota, four cases in Oregon, 15 cases in Nebraska, 246 cases in Michigan, and 97 cases in Idaho, with Central Florida seeing approximately 38 breakthrough cases. In Michigan, 11 of the vaccinated COVID-19 patients were hospitalized and three of them died. In Houston, Texas 142 fully vaccinated individuals tested positive for the virus more than two weeks after their second shot.12

So, despite what the CDC claims, the scientific evidence related to how well-protected a “fully vaccinated” person is from being infected with SARS-CoV-2 and developing COVID-19 disease remains unclear. It is also not clear how unprotected an unvaccinated person is when there is still much to learn about SARS-CoV-2. Everyone is different and any blanket claim about who is and is not protected from COVID-19 disease is overly simplistic and unreliable at this point.

    The flip flopping of the CDC reminds me of a song and dance called the Cupid Shuffle:

    They got a brand new dance (Mask on Mask off) , you gotta move your muscle
    Brand new dance, it’s called the Cupid shuffle
    It don’t matter if you’re young or you’re old, here we go
    We gone show you how it go

    To the right, to the right, to the right, to the right
    To the left, to the left, to the left, to the left
    Now kick, now kick, now kick, now kick
    Now walk it by yourself, now walk it by yourself

    Walk it by yourself. That’s where we are now. Depend on no one but yourself because you cannot depend on the so called authorities to walk in truth.

      Redpill, let’s hope the CDC gets enough rope to hang themselves. I think they have quite a few MILES of it by now!

      Until people realize (probably never) that it’s a combination of 5G exposure and cellphones, eating non-organic or fake organic foods with ROUNDUP in them, mineral and vitamin deficiencies due to processed ‘foods’ eaten daily that is causing this ‘pandemic’, nobody will know which way is up.

        OH, also, I predict this is another part of their global psy ops to yank the rug out from under everyone by furthering their agenda for mandatory vaccination, they’ll concoct another ‘wave’ of the virus coming around, probably when they switch on their 100,000 + 5 G satellite systems.

    Enjoyed that dance Redpill ! Indeed we cannot rely on government or other authorities. Fauci should know but contradicts himself continuously. Putting a mask on for a virus is like fencing your yard with chicken wire and believe that you will now be free of wasps.
    As to vaccines, is there one vaccine that is 100 percent true to promise ? Except for pox I think all other sicknesses are still around.

    Anyway, we are en route to a prison planet. At the moment, they eased up on the muzzle, “assuming you are ‘vaccinated’,” but they don’t require a “passport,” because

    1. The resistance would be overwhelming

    2. The goal is that people will DEMAND a passport first and, if that goes “well,” (not much resistence) there will be too many “fakes,” warranting the introduction of “invisible” tattoos (you will get a bonus on your UBI account, if you chip yourself first; later, you will have no access to your money, unless you are chipped).

    All these are already only a step away, but first, I expect an EMP attack, perhaps spiced with “aliens” attacking, in order to force people into compliance or starve/freeze to death. Disruption of supplies, electricity, water, combined with roadblocks to force-vaccinate the “hesitant.” WW3 on TV is not impossible, either…

    Many of you guys and gals, apparently, cannot see, what’s coming and are still mumbling about the law (which the monsters never follow, but use against you) or, worse, violence (which, I’m sure, the freshly-released 32k violent prisoners from CA will be happy to provide, because they have been released on condition of wreaking havoc). That alone will ensure martial law… The police will be replaced by corporate private armies, many of the enforcers will be robots… Sheriff’s departments will be abolished… Growing and animal-keeping will be outlawed for “safety” reasons. You will be forced to eat insects and lab-grown “meat” in order to “save the planet.” You will not be able to drive, unless you can afford an EV, which will be priced out of range for anyone’s balance on their UBI account based on “social credit.”

    In the meanwhile, the culling is making progress; the morons self-terminate and do it to their own children. Many of the “hesitant” will fall victim to the prion shedding from the “vaccinated.”

      Right on. I see all of that coming too. The prion disease that the vaccine could cause mimics Cow Disease which may give them the excuse to terminate cattle industry in favor of the fake meat and to “save the planet”. Just a thought. Thankfully we know the end game from Revelation. Jesus wins.

    In the distinct interest of social fairness and social justice, it is purely discriminatory to make unvaccinated people wear a mask. If you are injected, you then must believe that you are safe from all diseases and viruses, otherwise why risk death from a severe injection reaction? So, no matter if I do not get an injection or wear a mask or distance, you are protected and my taking a risk by refusing injections, masking and distancing is my business and my decision. It doesn’t matter to you because you must be fully protected…fauci, the FDA, CDC, Joey and big pharma have guaranteed it to be so. you got your injection, now you are forced to believe what the “experts” tell you. You cannot undo your poke; whereas my only risk is if my immune system is weak or not.

    As usual, state and local governments prefer to err on the side of removal of our rights – starting with the basic rights of personal (i.e. health) privacy and BREATHING AIR. so will businesses who are being threatened constantly by health departments if they don’t push the vaccine, police patrons/patients/clients on their mask wearing, etc.

    The mask will become the virtual “scarlet letter” OR everyone who is unvaccinated will be discriminated against. Which this is a basic discrimination setup. Divisive, lacking in science and utterly ridiculous. But then, science hasn’t been actual science since Big Pharma was allowed to create patented medicines about 150 years ago.

    My grandmother was right – “avoid patent medicines”. I should add, and don’t give any industry carte blanche to maim or kill people with no consequences. Oh oops, Congress did that in 1986 and reinforced it in 2001 with vaccines.

    God, help us all!

      I agree here…that’s the reason we need to grow our own food gardens and learn to preserve it. That’s another reason we should all learn to barter. That’s another reason we should all save some real silver or gold money or decorative pieces made of precious metals and gems..to trade or barter. This will be our Yellow Star ..marked to the public life …easy to spot for the vaccine policing squads or the rads in vaccinated areas to shoot us down. That’s another reason we should learn and Will learn what concentration camps really are. But when all the dying is done,,those left will be the Real new world…not the New World Order ..or ..
      Perhaps both of those groups will be left…as the next world order generation…and another war for dominance. As another poster said, this is the Nazi generation personified….and masks will be our Yellow Star…and civilization will start all over again. That which we read about as prophecies or futuristic sci fi films…is here.

    Why is no one talking about the immunity of those who have had covid, which is far superior. It is as those people do not exist. Instead they are still pushing them to get vaccinated. It’s ridiculous and harmful to so many families still separated from their loved ones in hospitals and long term care.

    From reading between the lines on the CDC’s what the covid jabbed people are now allowed to do relative to living and traveling. Looks to me like the same ole covid19 mandates will be left in place for the non-vaccinated individuals. Sounds a lot of discrimination to me. But I forgot. Only racial discrimination (real or imagined) counts with the cancel culture. One has to wonder how much healthy people will lose over viruses and diseases (natural or man-made) that doesn’t affect them.

    I don’t want to be forced to wear a mask….I CAN’T BREATHE IN THEM! I feel like my rights are strategically being taken away and I’m left under control. How can I fight for my right NOT to wear a mask and still enjoy the freedoms vaccinated people will enjoy? I’m pretty sure my employer will decide only those who’ve been vaccinated can work for the company…how can I fight back? toshach67@gmail.com

    Latosha: I tried on a muzzle (don’t use their terminology, because it will force you to think the way they want you to; invent your own for everything) at the beginning and after 10 seconds, I determined that they deprived me from air (yeah, surgeons wear them, but not all day and the operating room has enhanced oxygen levels for the same reason, which only few people know), so I quit once and for all.

    Don’t talk about “vaccination” or even “gene therapy.” This is genetic manipulation aimed at your extermination and/or control.

    This is not a legal battle; this is a fight for your humanity and your existence. Not that you can do a whole lot about it…

    As for employers mandating “vaccines,” (kill shots) they will be liable for damages (recent OCHA ruling) caused by the shots, because apparently, the manufacturers are exempt and the only recourse is to sue the taxpayer for a maximum of $250k within the first year after the jab. Of course, good luck going to court with this; the monsters will always make sure they have plausible deniability.

    Based on an invalid PCR test, and WHO pressuring against autopsies, it really is impossible to determine who died of Covid or with Covid.
    Monetarily incentivizing Covid diagnosis was a huge breach of medical ethics, opening up vast fraudulent stat recording.

    Warned for years of the New World Order goals, and massive evidence of Pathogen Patent applications, vaccines conditioning people for health complacency, a media coaching ‘getting back to normal’ and FDA Emergency use approvals, 70% goals of vaccination by Biden’s handlers, vaccine verbage vs. Injected nanotech devices, and now thrests the non-vaccinated will be punished… has been an enormous depopulation circus event.

    CDC were part of Patent applications, and issuing guidelines for masks and distancing. FDA is now approving these bioweapon vaccines for children. VAERS x 100 just begins to reveal the dead and dying. Fauci is a huge part of this plan. Fakebook is a SARS/Covid patent investor who censors medical information and has been allowed to use their conflicted interests to push what they say is true, deleting all else.

    Clear Communism and Criminality.

    I want names. Not agencies. And which military, politicians, medical personnel, media owners and secret societies have been part of this. Psychopaths can’t wait to brag.

    It’s a damn shame how many people were controlled during this “pandemic” & how they allowed a 3 letter agency dictate their life so much that the agency feels the need to announce they’re “allowing” certain individuals the right to breathe air & not their own waste anymore. Wow this world has really gotten twisted. I’ll refuse the shot the same way I refused the mask because I don’t need an agency to tell me when it’s ok to breathe oxygen. Sorry not sorry but I do not consent!

    Unfortunately I’m afraid it won’t be helpful anymore (the link provided to refusing experimental mandates) when they approve the shots, which they’re poised to do soon. They won’t be “experimental” anymore and so we’ll have to turn to exemptions, which are getting increasingly more difficult to obtain in some states. Do I have that right?
