Do people who get the vaccine still have to wear masks?

Yes. The mask order is still in effect in Riley County as well as the City of Manhattan. 

CDC recommends that during the pandemic people wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth when in contact with others outside your household. Social distance and good hand hygiene should also continue. 

If you have received both doses of the vaccine, it is recommended you continue to wear a mask so you do not risk spreading COVID-19 to those who have not been vaccinated.

Anyone who has trouble breathing or is unable to remove a mask without assistance should not wear a mask. For more information, visit considerations for wearing masks.
