Fully Vaccinated? The CDC Says You Can Gather Indoors Unmasked on Easter
Easter is just a couple days away.
No matter your take on the holiday, many of us appreciate a good excuse to gather with family.
And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) comes bearing good news: People who have been fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely gather indoors—without masks or other approved cloth face coverings.
Am I Fully Vaccinated Against COVID-19?
So you received both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine—or a single dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.
While all three shots are effective, the protective benefits don’t kick in right away.
People who have received the required doses of their vaccine aren’t considered fully vaccinated until two weeks have passed since their final shot was administered.
Please continue taking precautions until you are fully vaccinated. This will help to save lives so we can all gather safely next spring.
What Can I Do if I’m Not Fully Vaccinated?
If you are still hoping to celebrate Easter but aren’t fully vaccinated, you’ll want to do what you can to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
The CDC recommends either limiting your holiday dinner and Easter egg hunts to members of your own household, or gathering outdoors with loved ones while maintaining a distance of at least six feet.
If you haven’t received your vaccine but a non-household loved one is 100% protected, you can gather indoors together mask-free—but the vaccinated person should limit their non-distanced interactions to members of a single household outside their own.
Stay Safe and Healthy This Holiday Weekend
Please note that by continuing to do your part in slowing the spread of COVID-19, you can help to save lives.
If you haven’t yet gotten your vaccine, you can sleep easy this weekend knowing the administration is making good headway in distributing doses.
We have a feeling your turn is right around the corner.
