Guidance for Fully Vaccinated Residents

The Department Of Health has updated mask guidance following CDC announcement: fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask in most outdoor settings.
 

 Quarantining for Vaccinated individuals

People who have had both doses of a two-dose vaccine, or one dose of a single dose vaccine, do not need to quarantine after an exposure to another person with COVID-19 if they meet all the following criteria:

They are fully vaccinated

 

(i. e; more than two weeks following receipt of the second dose in a two-dose series, or of one dose of a single-dose vaccine)

AND

They have remained asymptomatic since the current COVID-19 exposure

AND

They are within three months following receipt of the last dose in the series

Please note that this does not mean the vaccine is only effective for three months, but rather that it is unclear how long immunity from vaccine will last. The CDC is utilizing what is known about natural post-infection immunity and limiting the quarantine guidance to 90 days at this time while additional research is conducted

Quarantine

If you’re exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19, even if you don’t have any symptoms, you must:

StayHome@2x.png

Quarantine for 7 days followed by a negative COVID-19 test

OR
StayHome@2x.png

Quarantine for 10 days without a negative test

Some people with the virus never develop symptoms, so you could spread the virus even if you don’t feel sick. You may also have COVID-19 even if you have a negative test. Remember, one infected person can spread the virus to many other people. Your choices matter!
