New York won’t require masks or social distancing for fully vaccinated people

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that New York will adopt the CDC’s guidelines to not require masks, inside or outside, or social distancing for people who are fully vaccinated. The CDC said adults and children who aren’t vaccinated still need to wear masks. Many states have lifted restrictions and started reopening as more people have received the vaccine. Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency room physician and the former Baltimore health commissioner. She tells Anderson Cooper only 37% of the population is fully vaccinated so “we have to consider our obligation to protect the most vulnerable” and right now policies don’t reflect that. Plus, Joel Greenberg, a former Florida tax collector and close confidant of Rep. Matt Gaetz, formally pleaded guilty to six federal charges. Greenberg admitted to a judge he had knowingly solicited and paid a minor for sex. Federal investigators are looking at whether Gaetz broke federal sex trafficking, prostitution and public corruption laws and whether he had sex with a minor. He hasn’t been charged and denies any wrongdoing. Former federal prosecutor Elie Honig joins AC360 to discuss what Greenberg’s guilty plea could mean for Florida Congressman.
