Rules for the vaccinated: first indications from the US on what they can do

Rules for vaccinated people: guidelines for meeting unvaccinated people and how to behave in public spaces have been released in the US

The United States was among the countries that organized a truly impressive vaccination campaign against Covid-19. While in Italy there is still talk of red zones, use of masks and social distancing, in the USA instead the rules for vaccinated people are starting to be stable, who will obviously be able to enjoy greater freedom in terms of movement and social relations.

Rules for the vaccinated: the first guidelines in the USA

This Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidelines that regulate the gradual return to normal following the widespread diffusion of the vaccine. Once immunized (the law provides that they are immunized 2 weeks after administration from the last dose), people undergoing treatment will be able to return to various activities that are currently prohibited. Vaccinated subjects will be able to:

  • Visiting or going to other people’s homes without wearing a mask and not respecting social distancing only if they meet vaccinated people
  • Visiting or going to the home of other people without wearing a mask and not respecting the social distancing only if they meet people who are not vaccinated but considered at minimal risk of contagion or the possibility of developing serious diseases due to Covid-19 infection
  • For the vaccinated there is no quarantine in case they come into contact with a Coronavirus positive person but only if they do not show typical symptoms of the virus

The rules described above therefore apply only in private spaces. In public and outdoor areas, even the vaccinated must wear a mask and maintain social distancing. The CDC reserve the right to update guidelines in the presence of unvaccinated people based on the progress of the infection and the progress of the vaccination campaign.

“There are some activities that fully vaccinated people can start resuming in their own homes now. However, everyone, even those vaccinated, should continue to adhere to mitigation strategies when in public settings. As science evolves and more people are vaccinated, we will continue to provide more guidance to help fully vaccinated people safely resume more activity, ”explained CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky.
