Those fully vaccinated can now gather outdoors with others who have received the COVID-19 vaccine without wearing a mask or social distancing.  That’s according to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Health officials announced today that fully vaccinated people can come together in the same way with people considered at low-risk for severe disease.

A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last  required dose of the vaccine.

About 30 million Americans, or roughly 9% of the population, have been fully vaccinated so far.
