Fully Vaccinated People Can Celebrate Easter Maskless, CDC Says


The Center for Disease Control and Prevention released new coronavirus restriction guidelines ahead of the Easter weekend, saying fully vaccinated people can celebrate the holiday safely without a mask.On Twitter, the public health agency wrote that those who are fully vaccinated, meaning two weeks after the second shot, can gather with others who are also fully vaccinated. 


The CDC says others should stick to their own households. Some recommendations include doing virtual dinners, watching church online or setting up your own outdoor Easter egg hunt. It suggests staying six-feet apart when possible and wearing a face covering.
