What the CDC Says You Should and Shouldn't Do Now

If it has been at least two weeks since you've gotten your final COVID-19 vaccination and your children, grandchildren or friends are at low risk for a severe case of corona virus, you can feel free to visit with those living in a single household without wearing a mask or needing to stay 6 feet apart.

  Guidelines if you are fully vaccinated:  It's OK to visit indoors with other fully vaccinated people without wearing masks or staying 6 feet apart. It's OK to visit indoors with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease without wearing masks or staying 6 feet apart. 

It's not necessary to quarantine or get tested following exposure to someone infected with the coronavirus as long as you don't develop symptoms.The agency also says that people who have been fully vaccinated do not have to quarantine or get tested after coming in contact with someone who has COVID-19 as long as they don’t have symptoms.   People are considered “fully vaccinated” if it has been a minimum of two weeks since they've had tboth doses of the two-shot vaccines or a single dose of the J & J vaccine.   

The CDC is also advising people who are fully vaccinated to continue the full spectrum of COVID-19 precautions especially when fully vaccinated people are visiting unvaccinated people from more than one household and especially around people who are at high risk of getting severely ill from COVID-19: 

  1. Avoid in-person gatherings of more than just a few people who live together.

2. Wear a mask that fits well over your mouth and nose.

 3. Maintain the social guidelines of 6 feet between people you do not live with.

4. If you have symptoms, get tested, and stay home until you get results. 

5. Before you travel, check the advisories and regulations for your destination. 

  Be aware that there are people who do not believe that the pandemic is real, and ignore regulations and advisories as an affront to their personal liberties. These people are amazed when in many cases they contract the disease. Many nay-sayers die as a result of their behavior. Avoid such people “like the plague."
