JCDHE adopts CDC guidance on mask-wearing and physical distancing for fully vaccinated individuals

The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) will adopt the guidance provided today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that individuals who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 can resume activities – indoor or outdoor, large or small – safely without wearing a mask or physical distancing. Exceptions include health care settings, correctional facilities, shelters or on public transportation like an airplane, bus or train. 

People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

Learn more about how this impacts employers, employees and those not fully vaccinated in this news release.
