New CDC Covid Vaccination Guidelines

coronavirus vaccineFully vaccinated people, according to the CDC, can do the following:

  • Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing
  • Visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe Covid-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing; and
  • Skip quarantine and testing guidelines following a known exposure, if they’re asymptomatic

The CDC still says those who are vaccinated should wear a face covering in public and still discourages nonessential travel.

This is the first federal public health guidance aimed at resuming some kind of normal activity for people “who have received both doses of the Pfizer or the Moderna shots, or one shot of the single-dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson.”

A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the final dose, giving the body time to build antibodies against the virus.
