"mad money. "the news with shepard smith" starts now new guidelines on wearing masks, and new incentives to do the right thing. i'm shepard smith. this is the news on cnbc. >> i urge all americans, don't let up now >> tonight the full recommendations -- where you can and should not ditch the mask. the fed's now investigating the shooting death of andrew brown, jr.,, plus the independent autopsy revealed this in fact was a fatal wound to the back of mr. brown's head. still we wait for the body cam video.
7:01 pm
community on edge. an iranian ship cuts off a u.s. coast guard cutter. the navy responds with a warning. tensions on the high seas. billionaires battle. tim cook versus mark zuckerberg, and your digital life in the middle. plus a test concert in covid. the coming cicada swarm. >> announcer: live from cnbc, the facts, the truth, "the news with shepard smith." good even, americans will remember this day as a turning point. a key step toward getting things back to normal, or something like it, and the most significant shift? covid guidelines yet fully vaccinated americans do not need to wear masks outdoors anymore, unless you're in a big crowd. that's the updated guidance from the cdc.
7:02 pm
the agency suggests people who are not vaccinated can go outside without masks in some situations president biden said the new recommendations underscore the progress we have made as a nation, all of us, in beating back covid >> the cdc is able to make this announcement because our scientists are convinced by the data that the odds of getting or giving the virus to others is very, very low if you have both been fully vaccinated, out in the open air right now 26 states plus d.c. have mask mandates in place. today, though, governors in several states, including maine, massachusetts and new york, eased their rules on wearing masks new orleans with the cdc this comes as nearly every available metric shows this pandemic is trending in the right direction. we're now averaging about 54,000 cases a day.
7:03 pm
the cdc reports that's down 21% from just last week. hospitalizations and deaths dropping as well, all good news. in a moment, reaction from america's original epicenter, new york city. i'll speak with a doctor about what it will take to roll back the guidelines even more first cnbc's meg tirrell breaks down the new recommendations hi, meg. >> hey, shep, the main message, if you get vaccinated you get to start to get back to normal, the cdc making it clear that right now, while case numbers are still high, that starts outside. getting together in small groups with mix you don't have to wear a mask if you're fully vaccinated dining outdoor, no mask if you're fully vac mated, but the cdc still wantses to -- like a live performance or a sports game how about inside masks are still recommended even
7:04 pm
for fully vaccinated people, but the cdc says it's safe to visit the hair salon, worship service, indoor restaurants or bar and exercise classes, many of which it says are much less safe for unvaccinated people, even with masks. by the way, what does fully vaccinated mean? either you're two weeks out from your second shot of pfizer or moderna or two weeks out from your one j&j shot. experts say they hope this turns around the decline in the daily pace of vaccinations in the u.s. >> we need to get the incentive going. people need to understand if they're not vaccinated, it really is a benefit. it's nice to appeal to the atruism, do things that are good for everyone else, but it's not like giving positive incentives. >> some states are working on other incentive. in connecticut a free drink at certain restaurants. in west virginia, people age 16
7:05 pm
to 35 will also get a $100 savings bond. >> free drinks, great idea meg, thank you dr. mario ramirez, emergency physician, former pandemic and emerging threats coordinator under appoipresident obama. it feels like this is a big step is this the beginning of the end of the pandemic if more americans get vaccinated >> it's a great step in the right direction. i think the president made the right point today, which is that guidance today is not about politics it's a data-driven recommendation that is based on how we see the vaccines behaving in the wild. we're seeing the transmission rates is extremely low, and so we can start to loosen some of those recommendations. there are things, to your point, that do have to happen before we continue to make progress and declare the pandemic over. testing is a key part of that, but this is a good step in the right direction. >> you know, convincing people
7:06 pm
to get vaccinated is the biggest challenge. the director of the niih says there's too much of the finger wagging stuff. do you agree what should the approach be? >> i think it takes lots of drift approaches clearly there are a group of people that need to hear a strong recommendations, but polling clearly suggests that other people don't respond well. for us to continue to turn the corner, it's going to take a couple different things. the first is probably persistent messages those of us who have worked in vaccine campaigns now this is are long and hard-fought efforts. the next thing it's probably going to take is an improvement in convenience one of the things we're looking forward to in the fall is whether vaccine manufacturers can bundle a flu and coronavirus vaccine together if we can do that, that will go a long way in improving the uptake of the vaccine. >> dr. ramirez, thank you so much
7:07 pm
nbc's isa gutihutierrez is n central park for us today. what are you hearing >> reporter: it's been a beautiful and busy day i'm right by the bike path here and across the way from the meadow honestly now only about a third of people are not wearing masks. most people are wearing masks. when i asked folks how they fool about this new guidance, a lot of them said it doesn't changes things for them. they're already comfortable not wearing masks outside. some people said i'm still going going to wear it until there's herd immunity. most people i talked to set they're feeling hopeful. >> it's exciting to finally hear people and see people. >> i think this is exciting and a step in the right direction. >> i get to go back and school, communicate with my friends, play outside with my friends. >> people must be freed, given the chance to breathe flee air and live a norm 58 life.
7:08 pm
>> even with the pandemic, people are very respectful of other people so i think we're going to get through this. >> i think it's exciting it says to me we're making this progress >> reporter: health experts are hoping this would be an incentive for people to go get vaccinated i did talk to some folks here who haven't yet been vaccinated, asked them does this push you to go out and get your shots? most said not really they kind of made up their minds or still will wait and see despite the updated guidance. >> hope lives. isa, thanks. there's new video that shows the moments leading up to the police shooting of andrew brown, jr. sheriff department 'tis shot brown while they were executing a search warrant at his home we still haven't seen the body cam video, but a nearby security camera recorded the deputies pulling up in a pickup truck look.
7:09 pm
[ bleep ]. >> well, that's the video. new today the fbi has launched a civil rights investigation into the shooting lawyers for brown's family released their even findings of their own independent autopsy. the lawyers saying the cops shot brown five times as they moved in to arrest him, four shots in the arm and a kill shot to the back of his head as he tried to drive away. >> he was leaving the site trying to evade being shot at by these particular law enforcement officers who we believe did nothing but a straight-out execution by shooting him in the back of his head as he was
7:10 pm
trying to get away in a moving vehicle. >> according to a search warrant, brown allegedly sold drugs to an undercover informant and the deputies were there to arrest hem for intent to sell three grams of meth, three grams of cocaine the family's lawyers say the warrant was no license to kill. >> the law enforcement cannot be judge, jury and executioner. andrew did not get his due process. he was innocent. i don't care what the warrant, what the search warrant, he was innocent he maintained presumptions of innocence. >> we could find out tomorrow if and when the public may see the body cam video megan fitzgerald is on the scene tonight. >> reporter: that hearing is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m that's when we could hear from a judge whether or not the public will be able to see that video now, the media, including nbc
7:11 pm
news, has filed a petition, and so has the sheriff, as he has promised to be transparent, but there's growing criticism from the family who was only able to see a 20-second snip et of a redacted video >> law enforcement intentionally edited the video to 20 seconds, intentionally blurred out the officers and guns, and showed us what they wanted to show us, under the guise of it being pertinent. >> reporter: i can tell you the community here is outraged, taking to the streets for the sixth night in a row, demanding the release of that video. today, andrew brown's son saying that between the snippet, the 20-second video he saw and the newly released autopsy that the family commissioned, he is convinced that his father was executed >> yesterday i said he was executed this autopsy report showed me
7:12 pm
that was correct those three gunshots to the arm, that wasn't enough that wasn't enough it's obvious he was trying to get away it's obvious and they're going to shoot him in the back of the head man, that [ bleep ] isn't right. >> reporter: the sheriff uss that autopsy is one piece of the puzzle meanwhile, the governor of north carolina is calling for a special investigator, a special prosecutor, to take over this case, shep. >> megan, thank you. monte freeman, only on the job since jan war and first african-american to serve as city manager there montray, how do you feel about it >> it's an honor to be here, shep it's not a privilege at all, though i absolutely welcome the governor's request i think it's necessary if we're going to do it right
7:13 pm
and the process is going to be trusted, that has to happen, but more importantly for the brown family, they deserve that at the very least. >> i know you can't control the decision about this video, but the family was shown only a redacted 20 seconds of one camera the law doesn't say they can't see the whole thing. it's written nowhere how do you explain that to your citizens what are you telling them? >> i can't explain it. we've had press members to make a city of our city cameras that process is to send a request in writing, sign for it and you'll receive it. it's not redacted. it's not changed it's public record although our cameras in the city don't show what their body cam footage i'm sure will show, you give it. you can't -- you shouldn't change it and then decide what someone sees >> the sheriff talks about ongoing investigation, and he
7:14 pm
can't team, but sheriff tommy wooten could come out and be a sort of salve on this. they're calling for him to resign does he have your confidence >> i'm trying to believe in him, shep, i really am, but i'm not seeing it. you know, as you said, i'm an african-american man this feels like, even sitting in my seat, yet another one this community is hurting. this family is hurting they lost a loved one. his children lost a father as i said, it's an honor to be here, but it's not a privilege at all, and my heartfelt prayers go out to the brown family. >> generally speaking, the relationship between the police department there, or law enforcement there, i should say, and the people of the community, how is it? prior to this. >> chief eddie buffalo, our police chief for the city, he's been here nine years, and he's
7:15 pm
been doing community policing since day one. our police department has an amazing relationship. >> what about the county this is county >> i can't speak for it. i haven't been here long enough to see it. i would say this process has been extremely disappoint fog me. >> mr. city manager, montre freeman, thank you best to your people. i appreciate it. >> thank you, shep. u.s. coast guard ships harassed boats from iran ignoring all the warnings tonight the navy's noisy response she was suspended from her cheerleading team for lashing out on social media when she didn't make varsity, now her case on the free speech rights of students heads to the u.s. supreme court. and a handshake. remember that? oh, they did it.
