CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said those who have received their second doses can resume their normal lives at home but adhere to the pandemic's mitigation strategies in the public.
"We know that people want to get vaccinated so they can get back to doing the things they enjoy with the people they love," Walensky said.
"There are some activities that fully vaccinated people can begin to resume now in their own homes. Everyone – even those who are vaccinated – should continue with all mitigation strategies when in public settings," she said.
The Atlanta based institute noted vaccinated people can without wearing masks visit those who have not received the jab provided they stay six feet apart.
It added one can avoid quarantine and testing for the disease if they do not experience symptoms related to the respiratory illness.
