Over 192 million doses of the vaccine have been given in the United States, 75.3 million people have been fully vaccinated. Nevada has contributed to 676 thousand of the people fully vaccinated in America. As people around the world start to regain some normalcy, Connolly Care Home Health has some tips from the CDC that you should know if you are among the vaccinated population:
The following recommendations apply to non-healthcare settings. For related information for healthcare settings, visit Updated Healthcare Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations in Response to COVID-19 Vaccination.
Fully vaccinated people can:
Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing
Visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing
Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic
Resume domestic travel and refrain from testing before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel.
Refrain from testing before leaving the United States for international travel (unless required by the destination) and refrain from self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States.
