News 12's Elizabeth Hashagen was joined this morning by Dr. Lucy McBride to discuss new COVID-19 guidance and how to balance our lives in this moment of transition.
The science shows that fully vaccinated people don't need to wear masks indoors. Of course, there is one major problem - how do you know who is vaccinated?
One constant of the pandemic has been the School Response Dashboard showing no correlation between masking students and COVID-19 cases among students or staff. Will students still be wearing masks in the fall? And what should parents consider about summer camps?
Despite high vaccine efficacy, we will see breakthrough infections. Nine people from the Yankees organization have been COVID-19 positive, but only one person had symptoms, and no one got sick. Is this what protection looks like among the vaccinated?
What kind of precautions should vaccinated people take when going to concerts, sporting events or other events?
The new mask guidance is one of the biggest signals yet that the pandemic has turned a significant corner and that vaccinated people will return to something like "normal" life. But almost immediately came questions from parents and families: What about my kids? How do you navigate this time with your kids?
