MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” host Joy Reid said she wore two masks to jog outside even though she’s fully vaccinated. NBC News Medical Analyst Dr. Vin Gupta responded that people shouldn’t be judged for their personal health decisions, but “there’s not been data for many months now that outdoor transmission is a thing,” and “there’s no way you’re going to really get exposed unless maybe you’re at a rave or outdoor concert where you’re really close to people who are not masking.”
Reid said “relaxed CDC guidelines are proof that vaccinations are working.”
“I am among the fully vaccinated, joined team Pfizer, and I did go jogging today in the park. And I did — this was the mask that I wore with a doctor’s mask under it. And most of the people that I saw that were in the park — the park was packed — I would say like 95% of the people still had masks on.
Reid then stated that when she’s jogging, she’s in people’s “backdraft” and “if I’m going to run behind a lot of people, I do it.”
