The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have just issued new guidance allowing those who have received the COVID-19 vaccination to throw away their masks while those who have not received the jab must continue to wear them both indoors and outdoors, while continuing to practice social distancing.
“Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, large or small, without wearing a mask or physical distancing,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky explained. “If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing the things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.”
The CDC website now says:
"If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic
If you haven't been vaccinated, find a vaccine."
The CDC update warns that those who “are NOT fully vaccinated” must continue “taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated.”
USA Today suggests, “The new recommendations from the CDC could also serve as an incentive for the tens of millions of eligible Americans who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 to get their shots.”
By issuing differing directives for the vaccinated and unvaccinated, the CDC is attempting to cast shame on those who must continue to wear masks.
For those of us who have no intention of being vaccinated, we are all Hester Prynnes now, wearing the 21st century version of The Scarlet Letter. And perhaps this is not far from the Nazi practice of forcing Jews to wear yellow stars, a psychological tactic to isolate and dehumanize.
