Alternate Title: Memorandum from Kathleen H. Hicks, Deputy Secretary of Defense, for Senior Pentagon Leadership, Commanders of the Combatant Commands, Defense Agency, and DoD Field Activity Directors on Updated Mask Guidelines for Vaccinated Persons, May 13, 2021

From the Memorandum: "In support of updates Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines released this afternoon, subject to any applicable labor relations obligations, fully vaccinated DoD personnel (who are at least two weeks beyond their final dose) are no longer required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors at DoD facilities. All DoD personnel should continue to comply with CDC guidance regarding areas where masks should be worn, including within airports. Personnel who are not fully vaccinated should continue to follow applicable DoD mask guidance, including continuing to wear masks indoors. The Department will review and revise all applicable Force Health Protection guidance to address the new CDC guidelines."
