In the latest from USCIS USA, following the updated guidance issued by the CDC, has made updates to its visitor policy. Now, individuals who are fully vaccinated needn’t wear face-covering anymore. Individuals who are aged 2 years and above, not fully vaccinated, must continue to wear a face mask.
Who is considered fully vaccinated?
A fully vaccinated person for whom at least 2 weeks have passed after his/her taking a second dose in a series of 2 doses or a minimum of 2 weeks has passed after taking a dose of a vaccine that’s single-dose.
USCIS has eased other requirements for fully vaccinated people who don’t have symptoms of the COVID-19. Those who have come back by international air, domestic air, or cruise ship travel in the past 10 days may enter the facilities of USCIS. This will be allowed only if they are vaccinated fully.
People who have been in close contact (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) with anyone identified to have contracted COVID-19 in the previous 14 days could also step into the facilities of USCIS USA, provided they are fully vaccinated.
Healthcare workers who wear an N95 respirator consistently as well as wear proper equipment for personal protection against infection or its equivalent when in contact with individuals who are COVID-19 positive are still exempt from reporting close contact.
In spaces controlled by DHS, this guidance applies over local, state, territorial, or tribal rules and regulations concerning face coverings in the context of the COVID-19.
