The CDC’s latest COVID-19 guidelines state fully-vaccinated people can gather together without masks. You can also go maskless around low-risk non-vaccinated people.
The CDC considers you fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dosage and two weeks after the single shot from Johnson & Johnson.
The guidelines are as common sense as it gets. But the people need their betters to decide to move to the next level. God forbid you think for yourself.
The guidelines also say fully vaccinated people do not have to quarantine or get a test if they have been exposed to COVID-19 unless they have symptoms.
From the CDC:
If you’ve been fully vaccinated:
- You can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask.
- You can gather indoors with unvaccinated people from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
- If you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19, you do not need to stay away from others or get tested unless you have symptoms.
- However, if you live in a group setting (like a correctional or detention facility or group home) and are around someone who has COVID-19, you should still stay away from others for 14 days and get tested, even if you don’t have symptoms.
“We know that people want to get vaccinated so they can get back to doing the things they enjoy with the people they love,” said CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky. “There are some activities that fully vaccinated people can begin to resume now in their own homes. Everyone – even those who are vaccinated – should continue with all mitigation strategies when in public settings. As the science evolves and more people get vaccinated, we will continue to provide more guidance to help fully vaccinated people safely resume more activities.”
The CDC recommends you stay six feet apart from each other and avoid crowds:
- In Public
- Gathering with unvaccinated people from more than one other household
- Visiting with an unvaccinated person who is at increased risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 or who lives with a person at increased risk
Experts believe 9.2% of the population is considered fully vaccinated. They estimate over 17% of the population has at least one dose.DONATE
