The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidelines for Americans who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
They recommend that fully vaccinated people can gather with other fully vaccinated individuals in small groups inside their homes without masks or physical distancing. They can also visit unvaccinated people from one other household who are at low risk for severe disease. The CDC also recommends that vaccinated people wear masks in public areas and avoid medium to large gatherings. Travel guidelines for vaccinated people have yet to be released, but fully vaccinated people don’t need to quarantine or take a COVID-19 test if they’ve been exposed. They only need to do so if they are experiencing symptoms, which they should monitor for 14 days even if they’re not in quarantine.
