Curi Updates FAQs to Explain Implications of CDC Mask Guidance on Practices

Following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance that individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may forego face masks in many indoor and outdoor settings, Curi has published information about what that means in healthcare settings. To read the new FAQ item, click here.

All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
