(NBC News) - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued new guidelines for those fully vaccinated against COVID-19...offering a light at the end of the tunnel for millions eager to return to "normal" life.
According to the new guidelines, once fully-vaccinated, people are considered safe to gather indoors without masks or distancing with other vaccinated people, and with low-risk unvaccinated people from a single household.
That's good news for many grandparents waiting to hug their grandchildren.
Still, with the threat from new variants and growing concerns over a spring break surge, the CDC says vaccinated people should continue wearing masks in public and avoid large gatherings.
They're also expressing concern about large gatherings over Spring Break.
