Outdoor activities where masks won't be required to be worn by fully vaccinated citizens include walking, running, or biking with members of your household, attending small outdoor gatherings with fully vaccinated family and friends, attending small outdoor gatherings with a mixture of fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people, and dining at outdoor restaurants with friends from multiple households.
The CDC also says indoor activities such as visiting a salon, going to an uncrowded shopping center or museum, riding public transportation, going to a movie theater, attending a worship service, eating inside a restaurant, and performing indoor exercises with a class are safe for fully vaccinated people as long as they wear a face covering.
Despite the newly eased restrictions, the organization is still asking everyone, including fully vaccinated people, to continue to follow the precautions we have all become accustomed to over the past year, including wearing a mask indoors, avoiding large in-person gatherings, and getting tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
The CDC has a robust website with all the latest information on the vaccines and can answer any questions you may have. Click here for more information.

Surrey RCMP officers in Port Coquitlam, B.C., busted a massive drug lab on April 19 that police say could produce 39 million fatal doses of fentanyl in just three weeks — roughly matching the population of Canada.
According to a statement from the RCMP, an "illicit fatal street dose" of fentanyl is 2 milligrams and the lab was capable of producing 26 kilograms (13 million potentially fatal doses) of pure fentanyl per week.

Surrey RCMP said it was helped by various federal and municipal police agencies in dismantling and collecting evidence from the lab, which was so big that it took three days to fully break down.
"This drug and chemical seizure has dealt a multi-million-dollar blow to organized crime and gangs in BC; helping attack the income sources of those who put our communities at risk with drug trafficking; and the gang violence that accompanies it," police said in the statement.
Police say no charges have been laid in relation to the lab's operations, but an investigation is ongoing.
