According to the CDC, more than 90% of Americans can get rid of masks.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data Thursday showing that Covid-19 levels have fallen so much that over 90% of Americans can live without masks.

This updated data shows that almost everyone in the country is located in areas with low or medium risk of Covid. It was released days following new guidance by the agency that changed how it measures that risk.

The CDC no longer relies on case rates but now considers hospitalizations as a key metric.

According an NBC News tally hospitalizations in all 50 states have dropped over the past month. According to data, all but two states -- West Virginia and Oregon -- saw declines exceeding 50 percent.

The new CDC guidance is applicable to all -- even children at school.

According to the guidance, people at greater risk of developing the disease should continue to wear masks and take additional precautions.

According to Jeff Zients, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Jeff Zients, the guidance did not affect rail travel, public transit, or air travel requirements. These regulations will remain in place until late this month.

Zients presented the four-point plan of the Biden administration during a news conference. He said it would allow most Americans back to their normal routines, by preparing for new variants and preventing shutdowns. It also protects against disease and allows them to "vaccinat the world."
