in their nose and throat. In some cases, the viral load is as high in vaccinated people as it is in unvaccinated people.“They do seem to have high enough levels of virus that they might be contagious,” Collins said. “Hence the reason, if you’re in a community where the virus is spreading, which is about 75% of counties right now, it is prudent to put on a mask, even if you’re vaccinated, just in case you might be somebody who’s spreading it.”
Donning a mask in public indoor spaces can prevent the spread of the contagiousDelta variantto children under 12 who aren’t yet eligible to get vaccinated, people with compromised immune systems, and unvaccinated people, Collins said.“It’s just good common sense,” he said. “I know it has confused everybody because it’s a change in direction.”
For a gathering of fully vaccinated people, Collins said, mask guidance should depend on the location and size of the group. People in private gatherings or small groups of less than 10 who are fully vaccinated don’t need to wear masks, he said, but a crowd of 100 people could warrant more caution. headtopics.com

There will be some need for common sense there.”Due to the spread of the Delta variant, cases have increased by about four times in the past few weeks, Collins said. More than 100,000 new cases have been reported on several days during the past week, and major outbreaks have been reported in areas with low vaccination rates, particularly certain parts of Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, and Missouri.
“So, if anybody’s listening who has been on the fence, it’s a tipping point now,” Collins said. “Let’s really try to get everybody out there and start to be part of the winning team to roll up your sleeves.”WebMD Health News BriefCDC: “When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated,” updated July 27, 2021.Read more: WebMD »
