CDC Lifts Mask and Social Distancing Mandate for Fully Vaccinated People

The CDC just put out a Tweet that put some spring in the steps of many Americans. As of today, May 13, they announced that If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.

In addition, fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, "except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance," according to the CDC.

The CDC says, "If you’ve been fully vaccinated..."

  • You can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
  • You can resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
  • If you travel in the United States, you do not need to get tested before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel.
  • You need to pay close attention to the situation at your international destination before traveling outside the United States.
  • You do NOT need to get tested before leaving the United States unless your destination requires it.
  • You still need to show a negative test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding an international flight to the United States.
  • You should still get tested 3-5 days after international travel.
  • You do NOT need to self-quarantine after arriving in the United States.
  • If you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19, you do not need to stay away from others or get tested unless you have symptoms.
  • However, if you live or work in a correctional or detention facility or a homeless shelter and are around someone who has COVID-19, you should still get tested, even if you don’t have symptoms.
