    Fully-vaccinated Americans can be unmasked when exercising, dining and socializing outdoors in small groups, federal health officials said, and can gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people and family members without masks or social distancing.

    But masks should remain on anywhere there’s a large gathering, including ballparks, malls or church, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday. And the agency urged that vaccinated people be mindful around those with a higher risk for severe illness.

    The new recommendations, which represent one of the most significant relaxations of guidelines since the pandemic began, are complex and wide-ranging. They come with almost 30% of Americans fully inoculated and with increases in the daily Covid-19 caseload starting to slow. Many public-health experts have advocated the change, saying it follows the science.

    Under the new rules, fully vaccinated people can attend a small outdoor gathering maskless or dine at an outdoor restaurant with others, whether they’re fully vaccinated or not. They can also get together indoors with unvaccinated people of any age from one other household without masks or social distancing, according to the agency.
