Throughout the United States, vaccines are being administered and COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted. According to the CDC, fully vaccinated individuals no longer have to wear a face covering. Additionally, individuals two years old and older who are not fully vaccinated must still wear a face covering. Read on to learn more about the latest announcements and travel.

What Does it Mean to be Fully Vaccinated?

You will be considered “fully vaccinated” if it has been two weeks since you received your second shot of a two-dose series vaccine. You may also be considered fully vaccinated if it has been at least two weeks since a single-dose vaccine.

What are the Latest USCIS Updates?

According to, “USCIS has eased other requirements for fully vaccinated individuals who do not have COVID-19 symptoms. Those who have returned from domestic air, international air or cruise ship travel in the past 10 days may enter USCIS facilities if they are fully vaccinated. Individuals who have been in close contact (within six feet for a total of 15 minutes or more) with anyone known to have COVID-19 in the previous 14 days may also enter USCIS facilities if they are fully vaccinated. Healthcare workers who consistently wear an N95 respirator and proper personal protective equipment or equivalent when in contact with COVID-19 positive individuals continue to be exempt from reporting close contact.”
