Take a look at which stores still need masks

While a number of states have adopted new guidelines from the CDC that prevent fully vaccinated people from wearing masks indoors or outdoors in most situations, some companies are taking a different approach.

Working groups and others warned that employees in shops, restaurants and other companies could be exposed to the coronavirus by customers and forced into the undesirable role of the “vaccination police”.

The CDC guidance unveiled Thursday continues to call for masks in crowded indoor spaces such as airports, planes, buses, trains, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, and urge people to comply with local and state regulations.
