COVID is ‘not over,’ but CDC says most of America doesn’t need to wear a mask. Should you listen?

No matter where you are in the U.S. these days, it’s likely you’ll be greeted by unmasked faces in public.

Today, more than 98% of the nation’s counties no longer fall under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation to mask up.

Last month, the CDC changed its guidance for masking to include hospital capacity, and raised the threshold for positive cases.

While the sea of full faces may make it seem like the pandemic is over, experts warn it’s far from done, and some worry the new metrics may fall short of projecting a community’s true COVID-19 risk.
