On Monday (3.08), the CDC stated that vaccinated people can come together — in a single household — with people considered at low-risk for severe disease, i.e. vaccinated grandparents visiting healthy children and grandchildren.
The recent Disease Control announcement is a 180-degree turn from comments made by revered infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci last month. “There are things, even if you’re vaccinated, that you’re not going to be able to do in society,” Fauci said in mid-February during a White House COVID-19 press briefing. “For example, indoor dining, theaters, places where people congregate. That’s because of the safety of society.”
In addition to the above, the CDC continues to recommend that fully vaccinated people still wear well-fitted masks, avoid large gatherings, physically distance themselves from others when out in public and also advised vaccinated people to get tested if they develop symptoms that could be related to COVID-19.
