The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone ages five (5) and older receives the COVID-19 vaccine.
Now that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has been approved for ages 5-11, it is available in Tallahassee and beyond.
According to the CDC, if you’ve been fully vaccinated:
First of all, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
- To reduce the risk of being infected with the Delta variant and possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
- You might choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission if you have a weakened immune system or if, because of your age or an underlying medical condition, you are at increased risk for severe disease, or if a member of your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated.
Secondly, you can travel.
- If you travel in the United States, you do not need to get tested before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel.
- You need to pay close attention to the situation at your international destination before traveling outside the United States.
- You do NOT need to get tested before leaving the United States unless your destination requires it.
- You still need to show a negative test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding an international flight to the United States.
- You should still get tested 3-5 days after international travel.
- You do NOT need to self-quarantine after arriving in the United States.
- Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and while indoors at U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. Travelers are not required to wear a mask in outdoor areas of a conveyance (like on open deck areas of a ferry or the uncovered top deck of a bus).
As of November 2021, Tallahassee and Leon County have been deemed a Moderate Transmission Zone, downgraded from a High Transmission Zone based on data centered around hospitalizations, positive tests, and deaths.
