Talk of the “new normal” has replaced discussing the weather nowadays. It’s become almost second nature to wonder where we are and where we’re heading in our collective COVID-19 journey. And while we all can recognize that we are indeed living in a new normal, it can be difficult to keep up with the everyday changes to that new normal. We’re hoping to provide some clarity, so we broke down the facts of the current CDC guidelines for those fully vaccinated.
The following recommendations were provided by the CDC and apply to non-healthcare settings.
The rise of COVID-19 vaccines
With Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines authorized for emergency use and more vaccines on their way to FDA for review, we’ve made a lot of progress in our vaccination journey. This is something to celebrate as we know the currently authorized vaccines are incredibly effective at protecting people against death from COVID-19, as well as symptomatic and severe COVID-19. On top of that, there is a growing body of evidence that suggests fully vaccinated people are not only less likely to have asymptomatic COVID-19, but are also less likely to transmit COVID-19 all together!
While there are still many things we don’t know yet, we have reached a point where our usual prevention strategies can be altered – but only for those who are fully vaccinated. At this time, these new guidelines do not pertain to non-vaccinated individuals. Please continue to practice all preventive steps as recommended by the CDC.
