The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidelines for the Americans who have been fully vaccinated. They are now free to socialize and engage in daily routine activities just like in days before the COVID-19 pandemic. The new rules bring new hope to Americans as they get ready to return back to normal life.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claimed that all the individuals who have passed two weeks after their final shots of vaccine were administered can visit indoors and meet unvaccinated people without following the mask mandate and prescribed social distancing.
The new guidelines have delighted many grandparents who have not been able to meet their loved ones for over a year. They can meet and greet their unvaccinated children and grandchildren without any worries. However, the new guidelines restrict them from going on long-distance voyages.
CDC exclaimed that fully vaccinated people can gather and mingle with other vaccinated individuals without any fear. If they get exposed to coronavirus and need to be tested; even then, there will be no need to isolate or quarantine themselves as long as no symptoms are identified.
The five-page long guidelines came just in time when various states of America have started to relax the rules and regulations related to the COVID-19. Three states have already decided to reopen businesses and eateries. A few states have dared to abolish the mask mandate also.
The vaccination drive has gained momentum. As the government gears up to vaccinate more people on a daily basis, new variants of the COVID-19 are being reported to wreak havoc in many states of the country.
Health officials have claimed that these new guidelines can motivate individuals who are still undecided whether to get themselves vaccinated or not. These guidelines can serve as an incentive as vaccines can lead them to get rid of the masks.
