COVID-19 vaccines are efficient at saving you from getting sick. On the basis of what we know about novel coronavirus vaccines, individuals who have been fully vaccinated can start to do certain things that they had not been doing because of the crisis.
According to new CDC guidelines after you’ve been fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, you should still keep taking strict precautions in public places like wearing a mask in the public areas, staying 6 feet apart from other individuals, and avoid large gatherings and poorly ventilated places.
On the basis of CDC guidelines if you’ve been totally vaccinated you can do following things:
- You can assemble indoors with completely vaccinated individuals without wearing a mask.
- You can gather inside with unvaccinated people from one other family without wearing masks, unless any of those individuals have an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
- If you come in contact with someone who has the novel coronavirus and you live with a group of people or group home then you should remain apart from others for 14 days and get checked, even if you don’t have signs.
What is Unchanged –
Presently, if you’ve been totally vaccinated:
- You should still take measures to protect yourself and others in many circumstances, for example wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet apart from others, and avoid big gatherings and non-ventilated areas. Take these safety measures whenever you are:
- In crowded area
- Meeting with unvaccinated individuals from more than one other family
- Visiting an unvaccinated individual who is at greater risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 or who resides with a person at increased risk.
- You should still keep away from medium or big gatherings.
- You should still avoid domestic and international travel. If you want to travel, you’ll still need to follow CDC travel guidelines.
- You should still take care of symptoms of COVID-19, importantly if you’ve been around someone who is not well. If you have signs of the novel coronavirus, you should get tested immediately and stay in your residence and away from other individuals.
Presently, the authorised novel coronavirus vaccines can save people from becoming ill but not necessarily from being infected. Information and research on whether vaccinated people can still spread the virus to unprotected people is scant.
