Here are some things guests can do once vaccinated, according to the CDC:

·         Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing

·         Visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing

·         Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic

·         Resume domestic travel and refrain from testing before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel

·         Refrain from testing before leaving the United States for international travel (unless required by the destination) and refrain from self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States — This could also open the opportunity for study abroad programs to resume in the future.

Walk-up appointments will also be available.
