(CNN) —According to new guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, those who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 may have other vaccinations or have not been vaccinated in some circumstances. You can safely visit with a small group of people, but you still need important safety measures. The guidelines will be announced at a briefing on the White House COVID-19 team on Monday.
The CDC defines a fully vaccinated person as two weeks after the second dose of the Moderna and Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine, or two weeks after the first dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Although vaccinated people are protected and there is increasing evidence that they will not spread Covid-19, scientists are still trying to understand how long vaccination will last.
“The level of precautions taken should be determined by the characteristics of unvaccinated people who remain unprotected against Covid-19,” the guidelines said.
The CDC states that fully vaccinated people can:
- Visit other vaccinated people indoors without masks or physical distance
- If unvaccinated people are at low risk of serious illness, visit indoors with unvaccinated single-family people without masks or physical distance.
- Skip quarantine and testing if exposed to someone who has Covid-19 but is asymptomatic but needs to monitor symptoms for 14 days
However, fully vaccinated people need to take precautions in many scenarios. According to the guidelines, a fully vaccinated person should do the following:
- Wear a mask and keep sufficient physical distance around the unvaccinated person if there are household members at high risk for severe Covid-19 or at high risk for the unvaccinated person.
- When visiting unvaccinated people from multiple households, wear a mask and keep a physical distance.
In addition, fully vaccinated people should continue with the following basic safety measures: Avoid medium and large crowds. Avoid poorly ventilated public spaces. Wash your hands often; if you feel unwell, get tested for Covid-19.
If fully vaccinated people live in a non-medical assembly environment such as a group home detention facility, quarantine for 14 days and exposed to persons with suspected or confirmed cases of Covid-19 You need to be inspected.
According to the guidelines, the risk of infection in social activities such as going to gyms and restaurants is lower for those who are completely vaccinated, but these settings are higher risk for infection and more people are not vaccinated. The more you need to take precautions.
The CDC travel recommendations have not changed if unvaccinated. The guidelines still state that the CDC recommends not traveling at this time if the number of cases is high.
“The benefits of reducing social isolation and easing some measures, such as quarantine requirements, are that fully vaccinated people get sick with Covid-19 or others with SARS-CoV-2. It can outweigh the risk of getting infected with the disease, “the guidelines say. “There are some activities that fully vaccinated people can now resume, keeping in mind the potential risk of transmitting the virus to others, while reducing the risk to themselves.”
Currently, there are 30 million people in the United States who are fully vaccinated.
