I’m fully vaccinated, so do I still have to follow the State guidelines?

That’s great that you’re fully vaccinated!  You’re helping to bring us another step closer to reaching herd immunity.  But there’s still more to do to ensure everyone in our community is protected from the effects of COVID-19.  Some State guidelines will still apply to you.  Here’s what you need to know right now:

Consistent with recent CDC guidance, asymptomatic individuals who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (two doses or one dose, depending on the vaccine product):

  • do not need to quarantine during the first 3 months after full vaccination, if exposed to someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 and between two weeks after and within 3 months of completion of their vaccination and remain asymptomatic.  Please speak candidly with contact tracers and your doctor about your exposure and vaccination status to ensure compliance with these State guidelines.
  • do not need to quarantine after domestic travel during the first 3 months after completion of their vaccination if it is more than two weeks following the final dose and they are asymptomatic.  Travelers may be asked to show proof of vaccination status.

Fully vaccinated people should continue to wear masks in public, socially distance from others, avoid large gatherings, get tested for COVID-19 if they develop symptoms, and follow guidance issued by their employer, the CDC, and the State to ensure everyone’s safety.
