The CDC has released new guidelines, where fully vaccinated people no longer have to wear masks indoors.

Right now, NewsChannel 13 is waiting to hear from Gov. Cuomo on what this means for New Yorkers and for people in the Capital Region.

After the CDC released the guidance Thursday, the governor released the following statement:

"In New York, we have always relied on the facts and the science to guide us throughout the worst of this pandemic and in our successful reopening. We have received the newly revised guidance from the CDC regarding mask wearing and social distancing for those with vaccinations and are reviewing them in consultation with Dr. Zucker and our partners and health experts in surrounding states."

This is a developing story. NewsChannel 13 will provide updates as soon as they become available.
