Regarding the vaccination plan, 167,157,043 people over the age of 18 have already received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, which is half of the Americans of these ages
Meanwhile, the main cinema chains in the United States announced this Friday that they will not require a mask to be worn by those spectators who are already vaccinated against the coronavirus.
AMC, the largest chain of cinemas in the US, said in a statement that this decision is in line with the relaxation of measures against the pandemic that has been formulated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
“Viewers who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to wear masks in AMC theaters, unless required by state or local regulations,” he clarified.
AMC also detailed that those who are not vaccinated should wear a mask when they go to see a movie.
The US has already applied 293,705,050 vaccines. The spectacular figure means that 40.5% of the population is fully vaccinated and if they are over 65 years of age, 85.8% have already received one dose and 75% two. In addition, in almost all the states of the country, tourists are invited to get vaccinated for free. Is that maximizing the number of vaccinated in the coming months is essential for the United States that wants to restore a principle of normalcy around the July 4 holiday.
Regal and Cinemark, which are respectively the second and third largest cinema chain in the US, announced similar measures to those of AMC.
After a ruinous 2020 for cinemas due to the pandemic, the exhibition sector hopes to overcome the situation in 2021, which, thanks to vaccines, has brought the country closer to a situation that is increasingly similar to normality prior to the coronavirus .
Hollywood studios also hope to cash in this year and release the many blockbusters whose release on the big screen was delayed until the pandemic was under control.
