"If you're fully vaccinated you could not wear a mask when around other fully vaccinated people"

The CDC announced fully vaccinated Americans no longer need masks but several people are still wearing them. Louisiana has over three thousand new covid-19 cases just this past weekend... Jaron Joseph believes wearing a mask is a choice

"Well, I have had covid so my thing is I look at it like just like a normal disease if you get to then your body becomes immune to it and it's easier for you to be out and about but if somebody never had it I would be very precautious.

Being fully vaccinated against coronavirus comes with a certain degree of exciting freedom... but some feel masks don't really help at all.

"I mean personally I feel like they don't really help but I think it should be like everybody's personal choice if you feel the need to wear a mask I mean of course you can wear it but I don't think that you should have to force anybody to wear a mask.

Healthcare professionals believe masks should still be worn whether you're vaccinated or not.

"Acadiana still a high-risk region so unless you fully aware of who your with wear the mask it's simple and help not only to protect you but to protect your loved ones or people who you really care about"
