De Blasio: ‘We Want to Strongly Recommend that People Wear Masks in Indoor Settings Even If You’re Vaccinated’
DE BLASIO: “What we’ll be saying today, and you’ll hear from Dr. Chokshi, is we want to strongly recommend that people wear masks in indoor settings even if you’re vaccinated. Now this is particularly true, of course, if you might be around anyone unvaccinated. If you don’t know the people you’re around, if you’re not sure if they’re vaccinated or not, or if you know someone unvaccinated, absolutely crucial to wear a mask even if you are vaccinated. The difference, of course, is if you’re around fully vaccinated people. That’s a better situation. So vaccinated people around fully vaccinated people, that’s where it’s an easier situation. But if you’re not sure, and that’s going to be many cases, we want to strongly recommend that people wear those masks indoors even if vaccinated."
