Fully Vaccinated People Can Gather Indoors Without Mask: US Medical Body
People who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 can gather indoors unmasked with others who have been vaccinated, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in new guidance Monday.
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 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 -- unless they live in a congregate setting like a nursing home or correctional facility.
The recommendations came as US states were moving to reopen schools and businesses amid a drop in cases.
Some 59 million Americans have now received one or more vaccine doses -- about 23 percent of the adult population -- and the immunization rate has been steadily rising after a shaky start.
