Recently, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Covid guidelines for those who received their shots against the virus. According to the updates, those individuals who received the coronavirus vaccine can interact with people who are vaccinated as well. Moreover, vaccinated people can also interact with unvaccinated individuals in a small gathering. However, they must follow the necessary precautions to avoid the spread of the virus at any cost.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC director said that the coronavirus pandemic took a huge toll on the US. She expressed her thoughts about wanting to return to a normal life with her family and community. However, we must follow the Covid guidelines according to science to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the lethal virus. She also mentioned that these guidelines are not final and the CDC will keep updating the rules according to future progress in the communities.
According to the CDC, the safely vaccinated people include those individuals who passed the two weeks after getting the second shot of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Moreover, people who spent two weeks after the single shot of the J&J vaccine are also considered fully vaccinated. Trials and data show that the vaccinated individuals do not spread the coronavirus in the community. However, Covid-19 is caused by a fairly new virus. Therefore, scientists are still learning about the spread and immunity to the coronavirus.
The Covid guidelines mentioned by the CDC suggest that the vaccinated people can interact with another vaccinated individual without the need for social distancing or wearing a mask. Moreover, if the unvaccinated individual is not at a high risk of contracting the virus, vaccinated people can also visit them normally. Also, there is no need to quarantine or get the coronavirus test after interacting with a Covid positive individual. However, look out for the coronavirus infection symptoms over the next couple of weeks.
The CDC Covid guidelines provide adequate relaxation to the vaccinated individuals. However, there are some guidelines that they must follow to prevent the spread of the virus in any way. Vaccinated people should maintain an adequate physical distance and wear a face mask around those at high risk of contracting the virus. Moreover, they should follow these guidelines while visiting unvaccinated individuals from different households.
The CDC also recommends that those who received the coronavirus vaccine should follow the necessary precautions. This includes social distancing in gatherings and use of face masks. Also, they should avoid huge crowds and maintain hygiene to avoid the risk of viruses. Moreover, they should get the coronavirus test if they feel the symptoms of the infection.
According to the updated guidelines by the CDC, vaccinated individuals can safely visit their gym and dine in restaurants. However, they should follow the guidelines in the presence of unvaccinated people to limit the spread of coronavirus. Meanwhile, the travel guidelines by the CDC remain the same for those who have not received the vaccine yet. The US currently has a high number of coronavirus cases, therefore, it is best to avoid traveling during this time.
