According to an analysis of Google search data “CDC” “Mask” and “Vaccine” al experienced a significant spike in google searches on May 13.

On May 13 the CDC announced that fully vaccinated adults could go without masks in both indoors and outdoors possibly triggering the spike in Google searches including the terms “CDC” and “Mask” with the term “Vaccine” following similar spikes.

Trader Joes dropped their in-store mask mandate on May 14 in response for vaccinated individuals, and as other corporations follow their leade these trends in search terms may continue to be affected.
