Residents of the U.S. began to be vaccinated in December. It’s utterly absurd that the CDC hasn’t issued ANY guidance on what conduct is allowable and what activities should be avoided. Did they just not add first shot + three weeks + second shot + two weeks for everything to become fully effective and realize that timeline ran out in early February? About the only factual guidance that’s been produced is that vaccinated people shouldn’t stop wearing masks. But what CAN they do?
You’ve been vaccinated — the CDC is finalizing guidance on what’s safe for you to do

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is finalizing guidance aimed at clarifying what Americans who have received COVID-19 vaccines should and shouldn’t do, according to two sources at the agency familiar with its drafting.
The upcoming guidance, first reported by Politico, is expected to include that fully vaccinated individuals should be able to gather in small groups with other people who have also been vaccinated. The CDC currently does not recommend in-person gatherings with the general public, saying “gathering virtually or with the people you live with is the safest choice.”
Even for people who have been fully vaccinated, other mitigation measures will still be recommended, including wearing a mask in public and social distancing.
