Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People

April 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.

• Resume domestic travel and refrain from testing before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel (updated on April 2).

• Refrain from testing before leaving the United States for international travel (unless required by the destination) and refrain from self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States (updated on April 2).

For now, fully vaccinated people should continue to:

• Take precautions in public, such as wearing a well-fitted mask and physical distancing.

• Wear masks, practice physical distancing and adhere to other prevention measures when visiting with unvaccinated people who are at increased risk for severe COVID-19 disease or who have an unvaccinated household member who is at increased risk for severe COVID-19 disease.

• Wear masks, maintain physical distance and practice other prevention measures when visiting with unvaccinated people from multiple households.

• Avoid medium- and large-sized in-person gatherings.

• Get tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

• Follow guidance issued by individual employers.

• Follow CDC and health-department travel requirements and recommendations.
