CDC: Guidelines after full vaccinatio­n


The U.S. Centers for disease Control and prevention on april 5 issued its first guidance detailing what people who are fully vaccinated against the novel coronaviru­s can do.

The federal agency says fully vaccinated people:

• Can gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people and they can do so without wearing a mask

• Can also gather indoors with unvaccinat­ed people from one other household without masks, unless anyone present has an increased risk of severe CoVId-19

• do not need to quarantine or get tested after being around someone with COVId-19 unless they have symptoms or live in a group setting, such as a correction­al facility

a person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna shots. If a person has received Johnson & Johnson’s singledose vaccine, they are considered fully protected two weeks after the shot.

People should keep wearing masks, physically distancing and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces until more is known about how the vaccines will affect the spread of the novel coronaviru­s and how effective they are against the variants, the CdC said.

Watch for symptoms of COVId-19, especially if they’ve been around someone who is sick.

Still follow all safety guidance at their workplace
