Fully vaccinated people against COVID-19 can gather without masks: CDC

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in new guidance that people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can gather indoors unmasked with others who have been vaccinated.

Those who are fully vaccinated can also visit with unvaccinated people from one other household indoors without masks or distancing so long as the unvaccinated people are not at high risk for severe COVID-19, added US CDC Director Rochelle Walensky.

Fully-vaccinated people who come into contact with someone who has COVID-19 also won’t need to take a test or quarantine unless they show symptoms, they added.

People are considered fully vaccinated  weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, where most vaccine has two doses.

Scientists are now very confident that authorized Covid vaccines protect people against severe disease and death.

The health agency also continues to recommend against attending larger gatherings and advises against domestic or foreign travel.
