Masks not required for fully vaccinated kids at summer camps, says CDC

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now says fully vaccinated kids — which at this point only applies to those age 12 and older — do not need to wear a mask indoors or out. But the majority of children who are not vaccinated will be strongly encouraged to keep their masks on indoors and when in crowded situations outside. Social distancing is also only recommended for the unvaccinated.

According to the state Department of Health, more than 93,000 vaccine doses have been given to kids between 12 and 15 years old.
