Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated PeopleApril 5, 2021
The CDC released its latest set of public-health recommendations for fully vaccinated people on March 10 and plans to provide updates based on the level of community spread of SARS-CoV-2, the proportion of the population that is fully vaccinated and the rapidly evolving science on COVID-19 vaccines.
For the purposes of this guidance, people are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 two weeks after they have received the second dose in a two-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or more than two weeks after they have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson (J&J)/Janssen).
Among the recommendations that apply to non-healthcare settings, fully vaccinated people can:
• Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or practicing 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.
• Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic.
