CDC releases new guidelines for those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19

Coronavirus

UNITED STATES (WSYR-TV) — The Centers for Disease Control has released guidance for those fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and say those with the vaccine can gather with other vaccinated people without masks or social distancing.

The recommendations also say vaccinated people can be around others considered at low-risk for severe disease, but fully vaccinated people should continue to wear well-fitted masks, avoid large gatherings, and physically distance themselves from others when out in public. 

The new guidance also says if you’re fully vaccinated is you don’t have to quarantine or get tested if you were exposed to someone who has COVID-19, unless you have symptoms.

The CDC recommends to still delay domestic and international travel even if you’re fully vaccinated.

A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last required dose of vaccine.
