When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated:
As a reminder, in accordance with Governor Northam's executive order and
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance
, if you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you can resume activities that you did before the pandemic without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations. That includes local business and workplace guidance. You are still required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
When Are You Fully Vaccinated?
In general, people are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19:
2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are not fully vaccinated. Keep taking
until you are fully vaccinated.
If you have a condition or are taking medications that weaken your immune system, you may not be fully protected even if you are fully vaccinated. Talk to your healthcare provider. Even after vaccination, you may need to continue taking
