America abandons mandatory masks for vaccinated recipients

Health authorities in the United States announced Thursday that Americans who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 no longer need to wear masks in closed places, and they announced that their recommendations have been updated.

“Anyone who has been fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, young or old, without wearing a muzzle or respecting physical distancing,” said Director of the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control, Rochelle Walinsky.

In a previous review, the Centers for Disease Control announced that people who have been fully vaccinated against the Corona virus, can exercise and attend small outdoor gatherings without wearing a muzzle, but they have required them to wear it in all closed places.

Jeff Zucker, CNN’s Longtime Leader, Says He Expects to Leave at Year’s End

The executive, who shaped the look and feel of CNN since coming aboard in 2013, helped build the Trump myth and then tried to knock it down.

Jeffrey A. Zucker, the relentless, ratings-obsessed executive who transformed American television news and played a central role in the political rise of Donald J. Trump, said Thursday that he expected to step down from his job running CNN at the end of the year.

In a three-decade career, Mr. Zucker has helped shape the evolution of the news and entertainment industries — and he has excelled at mixing the two. In 1991, at age 26, he was named the executive producer of NBC’s highly profitable morning franchise, the “Today” show, and he moved swiftly into the executive ranks to lead the network’s entertainment division.
