The recent announcement from the CDC that suggests that people who are fully vaccinated can forgo masks in many situations came as a surprise to many. In the days following the announcement, some reacted with skepticism, saying that the CDC moved too quickly. 

Dr. Mark Ebell from the University of Georgia College of Public Health says the CDC's guidance is appropriate, and he joined Alexia Ridley to talk about what the guidance means, his concerns, and why you may still want to keep a mask handy.

Alexia Ridley joined WUGA as Television and Radio News Anchor and Reporter in 2013. When WUGA TV concluded operations, she became the primary Reporter for WUGA Radio. Alexia came to Athens from Macon where she served as the News Director and show host for WGXA TV. She's a career journalist and Savannah native hailing from the University of Michigan. However, Alexia considers herself an honorary UGA DAWG!
