In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:
Persons who have a condition or take medications that weaken the immune system should continue to take all precautions until advised otherwise by your healthcare provider.
If you’ve been fully vaccinated:
You can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
You can travel.
If you travel in the United States, you do not need to get tested before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel.
Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and while indoors at U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and train stations. Travelers are not required to wear a mask in outdoor areas of a conveyance (like on open deck areas of a ferry or the uncovered top deck of a bus).
For persons who live outside the United States and are considering travel to the United States, please visit International Travel for further information.
What if I get exposed or have symptoms?
You should still get tested if you’ve had close contact with someone who has COVID-19 or if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
If you’ve had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, you should get tested 5-7 days after your exposure, even if you don’t have symptoms. You should also wear a well fitted mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until your test result is negative.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested and stay home and away from others. See a healthcare provider if you are really sick.
If your test result is positive, isolate at home for 10 days.
You will still need to follow guidance at your workplace and local businesses.
