Transcript for Many businesses still unsure how to proceed in the wake of updated CDC guidelines
Now to the pandemic and some confusion caused by the CDC's latest guidance on who should be- wearing masks. ABC's Trevor Ault joins us with the latest. Good morning, Trevor. Reporter: Good morning, Eva. Saturday afternoon was really the first time I could tell a distinct difference with this new mask guidance. Crowds of many maskless people packed together here in new York. It was something that would have been anxiety-inducing not too long ago. Instead it was celebratory. However, with millions of people not yet vaccinated, these steps have created new burdens. This morning from the streets of New Orleans' French quarter -- Welcome to New Orleans. Reporter: And the Las Vegas strip, more Americans taking the green light to scrap their masks. It feels good to be on vacation not wearing a mask. Reporter: The CDC's new guidance saying the well over 100 million fully vaccinated Americans can stay maskless indoors and outdoors in almost any setting, but the change now forces businesses to make tough decisions as to who they'll allow to be maskless. Even though the government says turn the switch, and okay. No masks, a lot of customers are still apprehensive about it, and many of our team members are too. Reporter: Many relying on the honor system. That's going to be an issue, is if people are walking around without a mask, how do you know they're vaccinated? Reporter: Some providing an answer. Oregon may soon require businesses to verify a customer's vaccination status before allowing them to go maskless. This would include seeing their vaccination card, a picture of their vaccination card, and checking they have been fully vaccinated. Reporter: Other states are working to avoid that. At least nine already banning so-called vaccine passports with nine other governors and state officials saying they oppose them as well, but more than 200 million people are not yet fully vaccinated and health care workers are continuing their push to administer more shots, and this New York 8-month-old Enzo mincolla is now the youngest person in the world to get two pfizer doses as part of a clinical trial. I think he's helping pave the way for vaccinating all of our children hopefully in the future protecting against this terrible pandemic and terrible disease. Reporter: And assuming those trials go well, pfizer said it hopes to apply for emergency authorization to administer their doses from ages 2 up to 11 this coming September, Dan. Very exciting for a lot of parents. Trevor, thank you.
