Updated CDC Guidelines
The CDC has recently updated its recommendations for those who have received their full vaccination protocol.
- You can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
- You can resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations.
- If you travel in the United States, you do not need to get tested before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel.
- You do NOT need to get tested before leaving the United States unless your destination requires it.
- You should still get tested 3-5 days after international travel.
- If you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19, you do not need to stay away from others or get tested unless you have symptoms.
- However, if you live or work in a correctional or detention facility or a homeless shelter and are around someone who has COVID-19, you should still get tested, even if you don’t have symptoms.
- People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken the immune system, should talk to their healthcare provider to discuss their activities. They may need to keep taking all precautions to prevent COVID-19.
Remember, you will still need to follow guidance at your workplace and local businesses.

Vaccines for People with High-Risk Medical Conditions or Disabilities

Eligibility is outlined in the CHPH bulletins and requires enrollees to sign a self-attestation that they meet the criteria. Enrollees do not need to obtain documentation from their health plan or provider of a health condition and/or disability as a prerequisite to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.”
