CDC director Rochelle Walensky speaks at Press Briefing

The US Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention has updated safety guidelines regarding "fully vaccinated" Americans. 

According to the guidelines, the people who have been vaccinated for full dose should no longer abide by the social distancing guidelines after two weeks of vaccination except where required by federal, state, or local laws and regulations.

However, unvaccinated or not-fully vaccinated citizens should still abide by the social distancing guidelines. 

Fully vaccinated Americans no longer need to wear a mask or practice social distancing in any setting and can generally refrain from testing and quarantining unless they show symptoms.

Fully vaccinated individuals with no COVID-19-like symptoms and no known exposure can also be exempted from routine testing, if feasible.  By contrast, the CDC guidance states that individuals who are not “fully vaccinated” should continue to take prevention measures
