The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released new health guidelines for people who are fully vaccinated. According to the details, those US citizens can now socialize and engage in their routine activities. These new guidelines and rules have given the Americans a much-needed hope to return to normal life routines.
According to the reports, people who have passed two weeks after receiving their final shots of the vaccine can now visit unvaccinated people without the need of wearing masks or the prescribed social distancing.
This comes as a much-need respite to many grandparents who live near their loved ones but were unable to meet them. Now, for the first time in almost a year, they will be able to greet their unvaccinated children and grandchildren without any fear. However, the guidelines restrict the vaccinated individuals to avoid long-distance traveling.
CDC also claimed that fully vaccinated people are allowed to mingle and gather indoors with other people who are fully vaccinated. If they are exposed to coronavirus and are needed to be tested, there is still no need to isolate or quarantine as long as no symptoms are observed.
The five-page long guidelines were released at a time when various states have started to relax the COVID-19 related rules and restrictions such as the mask mandate. In three states businesses have reopened to trigger economic activity. The restaurants are now open for dine-in. For all those people who made it through this strenuous past year, this seems like a breath of fresh air as life is expected to return to normal soon.
As the vaccination drive gains momentum, more people are now getting vaccinated on a daily basis. This will surely help curtail the transmission of the virus. With the new COVID-19 variants detected, there is still a long way to go, but at least the efforts have started to show results.
Health officials have claimed that these guidelines may work as an incentive to get people vaccinated, enabling them to gather indoors.
