Africa-Press – Liberia. The U.S. National Restaurant Association will no longer suggest that restaurant customers wear face masks inside restaurants. This follows an announcement by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control saying fully vaccinated people do not need to continue wearing face masks.
However, the CDC did recommend that fully vaccinated people should still wear masks indoors. “We still have a lot of questions for the CDC about how we need to implement their latest guidance,” Larry Lynch, the NRA’s Senior Vice President of Science and Industry, said in a statement sent to Reuters.
“We are in the process of updating our COVID-19 Operating Guidance where it reflects the CDC’s previous language and after talking with CDC, will determine if other changes are needed.”
The organization represents more than 500,000 U.S. restaurants of all sizes. Organization officials continue to urge restaurants to follow state and local regulations and has detailed guidance on employee health, cleaning procedures, social distancing and pick-up and delivery services.
