White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki spoke about the new mask guidelines that say fully vaccinated Americans don’t need to wear masks outdoors unless they are in a big crowd of strangers.
Watch Psaki’s remarks in the player above.
The change comes as more than half of U.S. adults have gotten at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine, and more than a third have been fully vaccinated.
Psaki said while the president will use the new guidelines outdoors, there is no plan for workplace changes at the White House when it comes to wearing a mask.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says unvaccinated people should wear masks at outdoor gatherings that include other unvaccinated people. They also should keep using masks at outdoor restaurants.
The coronavirus has killed more than 570,000 people in the U.S., the highest death toll in the world.
