The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated the guide on their websites and stated that people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 who meet the criteria do not need to go into quarantine if they are exposed to coronavirus.
In the updated guideline on CDC websites, it is not necessary for fully vaccinated individuals to go into quarantine within 3 months of taking the last dose unless they develop any symptoms. According to the CDC, the term ‘fully vaccinated’ means at least two weeks have passed since a person received the second dose of the two-dose vaccine or one dose of the single-dose vaccine. It is stated that people who do not meet this situation should follow the existing quarantine guidelines if they are in contact with a person suspected of having Covid-19 or having been confirmed.
While it is stated that the risk of fully vaccinated people spreading the coronavirus to others is ‘still uncertain’; However, it is stated that ‘vaccination shows that it prevents symptomatic Covid-19 and that symptomatic and pre-symptomatic transmission is thought to have a greater role in the spread of coronavirus than completely asymptomatic transmission’.
Other recommendations such as wearing masks, maintaining social distance, avoiding crowded places and poorly ventilated areas are still valid for fully vaccinated people.
