Prince William County announces Guidelines for Lifting “Face Covering”

Prince William County announced the new “Face Covering” lifting guidance in line with CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) and VA Executive Order 72 for employees and members of the public who have been fully vaccinated. Those fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear a face-covering in many county facilities.
Anyone who is unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated is strongly encouraged to continue to wear a face covering. Unvaccinated and not fully vaccinated employees must continue to wear face coverings. The county does not currently plan to enforce the guidelines; rather it assumes all employees and members of the public not wearing face coverings are in compliance with the CDC guidelines.
“Fully vaccinated” means after two weeks of receiving the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson (Janessen) vaccine.
Social distancing and capacity restrictions will be lifted on May 28, 2021, with conference rooms operating at full capacity. The County plans to be fully open.
Many are concerned with the opening and worries that it could lead to another surge in infections based on those that have not abided by physical distancing, face-covering, or vaccinating guidelines, but it seems that both federal and state governments are willing to take the risk given the relatively high vaccination rates among US population.
