On May 13, the CDC stated that people who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear masks or maintain social distancing in most situations. However, the CDC also noted that people with weakened immune conditions, such as cancer, should talk to their healthcare provider about the need for protective measures even after vaccination. Therefore, to protect our patients from COVID-19, MSK requires that all staff, patients, and visitors must continue to wear masks while at MSK. This requirement includes people who are fully vaccinated. You can read more here.
