When can I stop wearing a mask and avoiding close contact with others after I have been vaccinated?

Individuals should continue to wear and mask and follow other prevention recommendations after being vaccinated. There is not enough information currently available to say if or when CDC and local jurisdictions will stop recommending that people wear masks and avoid close contact with others to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Other factors, including how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities, will also affect this decision.
