People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely gather unmasked and inside with non-vulnerable people who are not yet immunized, according to long-awaited guidance released by the CDC.

According to the new guidance, people who are at least 2 weeks out from their last dose can:

~ Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or 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

~ Avoid quarantine and testing following exposure to someone if they remain asymptomatic.

~ However, there are still restrictions that will remain until further data is collected. Those who are fully vaccinated must still:

~ Wear masks and physically distance in public settings and around people at high risk for severe disease.

~ Wear masks and physically distance when visiting unvaccinated people from more than one household.

~ Avoid medium- and large-sized gatherings.

~ Avoid travel.

People considered at high risk for severe disease include those with cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD, Down syndrome, heart disease, heart failure, a weakened immune system, obesity, sickle cell disease, and type 2 diabetes. It also includes pregnant women and smokers.

"In public spaces, fully vaccinated people should continue to follow guidance to protect themselves and others, including wearing a well-fitted mask, physical distancing, avoiding crowds, avoiding poorly ventilated spaces, covering coughs and sneezes, washing hands often, and following any applicable workplace or school guidance," the guidance says.
