The CDC said yesterday that fully vaccinated persons (those who are two weeks out from having received both doses of a two-dose regime, or the single Johnson & Johnson jab) may gather indoors and unmasked with other fully vaccinated persons, may gather with low-risk persons from other households, and do not have to quarantine if exposed to a COVID patient.  

This guidance is not binding, but it is welcome news for the growing number of Americans who are fully vaccinated against COVID.  Approximately 31 million Americans are fully vaccinated, and the US has administered an average of 2.16 million doses of vaccine per day for the last week, according to The Washington Post.
