After Dr. Fauci acknowledged that transmission is extremely low outdoors, the CDC has updated its guidance.
Fully vaccinated Americans will no longer need to cover their faces outdoors unless they are in a big crowd of strangers.
Americans are still advised to wear masks indoors.

The idea that people were expected to wear masks while hiking in the first place is ludicrous
At this point in time, more than half of adults in the US have received their first shot and over 1/3 have received 2 doses making them fully vaccinated.
