Individuals fully inoculated against COVID-19 can meet in small groups with other vaccinated people without wearing masks, but should keep wearing them outside the home, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Monday. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said during a briefing that the agency's new guidance for fully vaccinated individuals stipulated that they can also visit with unvaccinated, low-risk people from one other household without masks. The CDC advised fully vaccinated people that they should continue with many precautions such as avoiding medium- and large-sized in-person gatherings, wearing masks when visiting with unvaccinated people from multiple households or wearing masks when with people who are at risk for severe COVID-19.
Federal health officials said Monday that fully vaccinated people can socialize together indoors in small groups without taking any preventative measures such as wearing a mask or social distancing if it takes place at least two weeks after completing their COVID-19 vaccination regimen. This includes people who have received both doses of the Pfizer Inc. or Moderna Inc. vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also said during a White House briefing that vaccinated households can socialize indoors with one other unvaccinated household without taking preventative measures (as long as no one in the unvaccinated group is at high risk for severe disease), and that vaccinated people do not need to quarantine after being exposed to someone who tests positive for COVID-19 as long as they do not have symptoms. The CDC's new guidance does not address travel. Walensky also noted that "there is still a small risk that vaccinated people could become infected with milder or asymptomatic disease and potentially even transmit the virus to others who are not vaccinated."
U.S. President Biden will meet with the chief executives of Johnson & Johnson and Merck & Co Inc at the White House on Wednesday after the companies recently announced a COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing deal, a White House official said on Monday. The president had been expected to attend an event with the CEOs during a visit on Wednesday to vaccine manufacturer Emergent Biosolutions, but the trip to the company's Baltimore facility was canceled, the official said.
