CDC Releases Guidelines for People Vaccinated Against Covid-19


March 10, 2021

On Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its first guidelines for people who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

To keep unvaccinated individuals safe, the guidelines still recommend vaccinated people to practice social distancing and mask wearing in public, avoid large group gatherings and refrain from travel. But for the first time, the guidelines also lay out several activities that vaccinated people can safely do. According to the CDC, small, private gatherings of vaccinated people can begin again without social distancing and mask-wearing, and a vaccinated person can visit a household where people aren’t vaccinated as long as no one is at high risk of severe illness.

"Covid-19 continues to exert a tremendous toll on our nation. Like you, I want to be able to return to everyday activities and engage with our friends, families, and communities," said Rochelle Walensky, the CDC Director, at the White House briefing, reports Jen Christensen for CNN. "Science, and the protection of public health must guide us as we begin to resume these activities. Today's action represents an important first step. It is not our final destination."
