Connecticut residents who are fully vaccinated are being urged to follow new CDC guidance this Easter, which includes being able to gather indoors and without masks.
This guidance applies to individuals who are gathering with other fully vaccinated individuals.
People who are not fully vaccinated should still wear masks and social distance this Easter, according to the CDC.
In a tweet, CDC officials said people who are not fully vaccinated should celebrate Easter with people they live with, virtually or outside while staying six feet apart.
New guidance from the CDC has also been released regarding traveling for those who are fully vaccinated.
Quarantines are no longer needed for domestic trips, and a test is only needed if the destination requires it.
As for international trips, the CDC recommends holding off, but the same rules apply. They added a recommendation for a COVID-19 test three to five days after you return. And no matter where or how you travel, the agency also recommends wearing a mask, social distancing and frequent handwashing.
