The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that people who have been vaccinated are no longer required to quarantine after exposure to someone with the coronavirus, as long as they have received both doses of the vaccine and at least two weeks have passed since the second shot.

The CDC updated guidance says vaccinated people may skip quarantine if they are asymptomatic, and if their contact with an infected person came at least two weeks after receipt of the final dose in the two-shot vaccination series and within three months of receipt of that second dose.

The recommendation is similar to what the CDC has said about people who developed immunity after being infected with covid-19.
