The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have issued new guidelines for people who have been vaccinated against the Covid-19 disease.
In a statement on Monday, 8 March, the national public health institute in the United States said Americans who have received the jab can meet indoors and interact freely without following Covid-19 protocols.
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.
As of Monday, 8 March, over 30 million Americans had been vaccinated against Covid-19 according to the CDC.
