0

The Department of Health has updated its mask guidance to reflect that of the CDC. Fully vaccinated people can:

– Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing
– Visit with unvaccinated people (including children) from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing
– Participate in outdoor activities and recreation without a mask, except in certain crowded settings and venues
– 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
– Refrain from testing following a known exposure, if asymptomatic, with some exceptions for specific settings
– Refrain from quarantine following a known exposure if asymptomatic
– Refrain from routine COVID-19 testing if asymptomatic and if feasible

For now, fully vaccinated people are still advised to:

– Take precautions like wearing a well-fitted mask in indoor public settings
– Wear masks that fit snuggly when visiting indoors with unvaccinated people who are at increased risk for severe COVID-19 disease or who have an unvaccinated household member who is at increased risk for COVID-19
– Wear well-fitted masks when visiting indoors with unvaccinated people from multiple households
– Avoid indoor large-sized, in-person gatherings
– Get tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
– Follow guidance issued by individual employers
– Follow CDC and health department travel requirements and recommendations
