Jessica Justman, MD weighs in on guidelines that still encourage vaccinated groups to wear masks and socially distance in public spaces to protect those who are unvaccinated.

“The guidelines on gatherings emphasize the importance of understanding the risk of the gathering based on number of cases in the community, exposure of attendees while traveling to the event, type of ventilation at the event, length of the event, ability to maintain physical distance at the event and behavior of attendees at the event,” says Jessica Justman, an infectious-disease expert at Columbia University.
