What You Need to Know
  • If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing many things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
  • When choosing safer activities, consider how COVID-19 is spreading in your community, the number of people participating in the activity, and the location of the activity.
  • Outdoor visits and activities are safer than indoor activities, and fully vaccinated people can participate in some indoor events safely, without much risk.
  • If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, find a vaccine.

Prevention measures not needed

Take prevention measures

  • Fully Vaccinated People:  Wear a mask.
  • Unvaccinated People:  Wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart, and wash your hands.
  • Safety levels assume the recommended prevention measures are followed, both by the individual and the venue (if applicable).
  • CDC cannot provide the specific risk level for every activity in every community. It is important to consider your own personal situation and the risk to you, your family, and your community before venturing out.
