Mask Confusion

Tested Podcast logo

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says fully vaccinated people can ditch their facemasks, for the most part. But some are still uneasy about taking it off in public and others are confused about exceptions to the rules.

Host Leoneda Inge talks about her recent trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C., where some vacationers are still wearing masks, and some aren't. Inge also talks with Dr. Adia Ross, Chief Medical Officer of Duke Regional Hospital, about the CDC's new mask guidelines for people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Leoneda Inge is WUNC’s race and southern culture reporter, the first public radio journalist in the South to hold such a position. She also is co-host of the podcast Tested and host of the special podcast series, PAULI. Leoneda is the recipient of numerous awards from AP, RTDNA and NABJ. She’s been a reporting fellow in Berlin and Tokyo. You can follow her on Twitter @LeonedaInge.
