the main reason why vaccinated people are 5 times less likely to get Covid isn't masks and precautions
you're missing the point. vaccination does help protect people from covid infection.
But my point was that if unvaccinated people would at least wear masks correctly and consistently and follow precaution protocols (distancing, avoiding high risk areas (crowds, stores that cater to unvaccinated people etc) -like the CDC suggests they do- they wouldnt be catching and spreading covid nearly as much as they are.
alas you are right, the unvaccinated (2/3rds) are actually masking up. i guess they aren't as irresponsible as i thought.(otherwise known as wild guesses)
well, in my state they are ...as only 14% are masking up.
Despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) telling fully vaccinated Americans they no longer need masks in most situations, plenty of people are still wearing them. A poll from Vox and Data for Progress taken shortly after the CDC rescinded its mask guidelines for vaccinated individuals found that more than half of vaccinated people are still wearing masks. Another survey conducted after the CDC's mid-May policy reversal found that 4 in 10 vaccinated individuals continue to mask up.
While 29% of Americans are still unvaccinated, nearly two-thirds of this group (19%) are concerned enough about the spread of COVID-19 to regularly wear a mask,
Geographically, this group is disproportionately southern (45%) and less likely to be from the Northeast (14%).
