The CDC guidelines state that a fully vaccinated person is 'a person who is also fully vaccinated' or 'a person who has not yet been vaccinated but lives in a single household with a low risk of infection'. It is stated that you can spend time indoors together without having to wear a mask or secure a distance. This will allow vaccinated people to have dinners with each other and vaccinated grandparents to spend time with unvaccinated children without wearing masks. ' CDC says.

However, if a fully vaccinated person spends time indoors with 'a person who has not been vaccinated and who or his or her family is at high risk of being infected with the new coronavirus', the mask will continue to be used. It is necessary to wear a mask and keep a distance of 6 feet (about 1.8 meters) or more.

In addition, if people who live in groups in detention centers or group homes become close contacts, they will need to be completely vaccinated and tested even if no symptoms are confirmed.

'The risk of infection that fully vaccinated people pose to unvaccinated people is still under investigation,' said Rochelle Warrensky, director of the CDC. The guidelines we have provided are tentative and will be updated as we become more familiar with the virus. '
