US CDC gives nod to fully vaccinated people to go without masks

Coronavirus Updates by US’ CDC: Fully vaccinated people in the United States can go without wearing masks and gather with other vaccinated people indoors, the federal health officials said. However, these people will still have to follow COVID-19 norms including wearing masks and maintaining social distancing in public spaces.

Thus, grandparents, who have been vaccinated, can now visit healthy children and their grandchildren.
