New CDC guidelines say fully vaccinated people don’t have to quarantine if exposed to someone with COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has released new guidelines stating that people who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus do not have to quarantine if they are exposed to someone who has the virus.

“Fully vaccinated persons who meet criteria will no longer be required to quarantine following an exposure to someone with COVID-19,” the CDC said Wednesday.

It added, “Vaccinated persons with an exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are not required to quarantine if they meet all of the following criteria.”

The criteria are that the person has had both doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine approved by the FDA and that two weeks has passed since the second vaccination. Studies show that it takes about two weeks for full immunity to build up after the second dose of the vaccination, according to The Hill.

Vaccinated people still supposed to wear masks, social distance

If more than three months have passed since the second dose of the vaccine, however, the quarantine is still warranted, the CDC said, because experts are unsure how long the effects of the vaccine will last.

“This recommendation to waive quarantine for people with vaccine-derived immunity aligns with quarantine recommendations for those with natural immunity, which eases implementation,” the CDC said.

Vaccinated people are still supposed to wear masks, social distance, and follow other CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus. It is still unclear whether people who have been vaccinated can spread the virus to others.

Millions of people in the U.S. are now fully vaccinated, and more vaccines including a Johnson&Johnson version that only requires one dose will be seeking FDA approval soon.

Cases declining

Cases and hospitalizations have declined to October levels over the past several weeks, but are still considered high. New variants are expected to cause cases to rise again because they seem to be more infectious than the strains already circulating widely in the U.S.

Deaths have also declined from peak levels to a lesser degree, but are thought to lag a few weeks behind new case numbers in their movement.

It is also possible that some of the deaths classified as being from the coronavirus are actually flu deaths, since the numbers for the flu are much lower than expected.

Pfizer reported that it has now cut its production time in half with on-the-fly improvements to its manufacturing processes, as it tries to meet an ambitious goal of two billion doses by the end of the year. Johnson&Johnson has similar production time and only requires one dose of the virus, which will speed the process along when it is approved by the FDA.

    2. gee the CDC and Fauci could not be more stupid. Who is so stupid that they would even consider quarantining someone who was vaccinated? or who had the disease before.

      It is like the CDC and Fauci are so completely incompetent that small children understand more then they do.

      since we now know Fauci did the initial development of covid 19 and then contracts with wuhan lab to refine is using $3.7 million dollars Obama/biden gave him. We have to ask: gee Fauci what did you develop that you are now so afraid of?

      Maybe Fauci needs to be tied down and made to confess whats up!!

    3. The misrepresented ‘vaccine’ is in fact an expiremental gene therapy, all of the fake vaccines are seeking to obtain liability exemption for injuries or casualties under 15 US Code; don’t be fooled by the corrupt bureaucrats.

  1. All this over an illness with a survival ratio of 97% for those under 70 years of age?

    Those of us who have Faith in God, see that as a number that hey, if he wants me, I’m not escaping.

    Likewise If is about CONTROL the DEMOCRATS have always proven their willingness to lie, cheat and exploit anything at every opportunity.

  3. I just read Biden is considering e o’s to make everyone wear pantyhose over the face. I wonder how many illegals jumping the border are not ordered to do so. I haven’t decided on the color yet. Black if you’re racist, white if you’re hypocrite. I’d rather be racist, so I’ll wear black. No-e I can buy some on sale. Maybe Biden will give them to all, including illegals.
