Last week, the CDC issued new guidelines for people fully vaccinated against COVID-19. By fully vaccinated, we mean people who have received and are at least two weeks out from both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the single dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. Fully vaccinated people can now gather with each other indoors without masks or six-feet of social distancing. They can visit unvaccinated people from a single household if everyone in that household is at low risk of developing a severe case of COVID-19. And perhaps even better news, fully vaccinated people with no COVID symptoms no longer have to quarantine or be tested following an exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19. We all still have to exercise caution, but hopefully, these guidelines encourage more Americans to get the vaccine.
