7/28/2021 Updated Guidance for Fully Vaccinated People Should Seek Out a COVID-19 Test if Exposed to a Person with Virus

On July 28, 2021 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidance for people who are vaccinated against COVID-19 and have been exposed to someone known or suspected to be infected with the virus.

The CDC now says vaccinated people should seek out a COVID-19 test three to five days after being exposed to a person who may have contracted the virus. In addition, any vaccinated person who has been exposed should wear a mask in indoor public settings for two weeks or until they receive a negative COVID-19 test result. The CDC says anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, should isolate themselves and seek out a test.
