The revisions to the COVID-19 recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show the return to normalcy.
On Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reviewed its COVID-19 instructions, heading off the gradual return to normalcy in the United States.
The current policy from the CDC is focused specifically at indoor meetings, face masks, and social distancing. As reported by CDC, individuals who have been completely vaccinated will now meet in small clusters within their homes without considering certain limitations like face masks or social distancing.
Furthermore, entirely vaccinated people may encounter immunocompromised (unvaccinated) individuals who are low-risk from some other residence.
If completely vaccinated people have been infected with the virus, the latest recommendations states that they might not have to isolate or take a COVID-19 examination. Though people who have been completely vaccinated develop symptoms, they must quarantine themselves and take a COVID-19 examination.
Ultimately, if a properly vaccinated person comes into interaction with someone who is suspected to be COVID-19 positive, his health condition should be monitored for at least 14 days.
In a White House Conference on Monday, Director of CDC Rochelle Walensky said, “You can visit your grandparents if you’ve been vaccinated and they have been, too. If grandparents have been vaccinated, they can visit their daughter and her family even if they have not been vaccinated, so long as the daughter and her family are not at risk for severe disease.”
“The new guidance from CDC on what people can do if they are fully vaccinated is welcome news to a nation that is understandably tired of the pandemic and longs to safely resume normal activities”, said Dr. Richard Besser, president and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
