Fully Vaccinated Need To Be Tested (If) They Are Exposed To Positive COVID Individuals

Presented By Classic Brands

To say the least, there has been some confusion with people concerning the use of proper protocol concerning COVID-19, even among the fully vaccinated.

The Centers for Disease Control says even for those who are fully vaccinated, there is a need to be tested (if) they come into “close contact” with someone who tests positive for COVID. The definition of close contact is “being within 6 feet of the infected person for at least 15 minutes (total) over a 24 hour period.”

If this did occur, you should wear a mask for 14 days and be tested between days 3-5 following your exposure and continue to wear a mask until you receive a negative test. If you test positive, you should isolate for 10 days.
