When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated for COVID-19

CDC released new guidance today on what you can do once you’re fully vaccinated. Please see the CDC website for additional information: CDCGuidlines

  • You can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask.
  • You can gather indoors with unvaccinated people from one other household without masks unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from Covid-19.
  • 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.

(If you live in a group setting such as a correction or detention facility or group home and are around someone who has COVID-19, you should still stay away from others for 14 days and get tested.)

Sweetwater County is still in the Red for Transmission Indicators by County.

 Please continue to do what you can to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Wash your hands.
  • Wear a mask if you’re not fully vaccinated or as indicated above.
  • Maintain physical distance.
  • Get vaccinated.
