Now that more and more people are getting vaccinated.
The CDC shared how grandparents can safely reunite with their family members. They stated that people are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 2 weeks after they have received the second dose of the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
Once fully vaccinated grandparents or older relatives meet this criteria, they are able to do the following:
- Visit other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or social distancing
- Visit unvaccinated people from a single household who are low at risk for severe COVID-19 indoors without wearing masks or social distancing
- Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic
