The CDC has some good news for people who have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus – you’re free to gather without wearing a mask.

On Monday, the agency shared new guidelines for people who were fully vaccinated – meaning at least two weeks have passed since getting your final vaccine dose.

Fully vaccinated people can safely gather indoors in small groups with others who are also vaccinated – as long as no one in the group has an increased risk of severe illness.

However, the CDC still recommends wearing a mask in public or around people who are not yet fully vaccinated – and against medium or large-sized gatherings.
