Joe Biden said it’s “a great day for America.”

Health authorities in the United States indicated this Thursday that people who are already fully vaccinated against the coronavirus can stop using masks in closed spaces, with some limitations.

The same applies to the recommendation to maintain “social distance” 2 meters, another of the preventive measures that have been taken in the US and many countries in the world due to the pandemic.

These recommendations do not apply in places such as hospitals, prisons or shelters for the homeless.

Rochelle Walensky, the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told a news conference: “Anyone who is fully vaccinated you can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, large and small, without having to wear a mask or keep a physical distance. “
