The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) unveiled new guidelines for fully vaccinated Americans on Tuesday, including activities they can safely resume without wearing masks.
Fully vaccinated people can participate in outdoor activities and recreation without a face covering, the CDC said.
They can also meet outdoors with a small group of other fully vaccinated people, or a mixture of fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people, according to the new guidance.
Dining unmasked at an outdoor restaurant with friends from multiple households is also acceptable, said the CDC.
Fully vaccinated people do not need to get tested before or after travel in the United States or self-quarantine after travel, according to the CDC.
The new guidelines also urged the continued use of masks in most indoor settings and in crowded outdoor settings. The CDC asks fully vaccinated people to avoid indoor large gatherings. ■
