People who have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus should be safe to gather indoors — without masks — on Easter Sunday, but only with other vaccinated people, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

“If you are fully vaccinated against COVID19, you can gather safely for Easter with other fully vaccinated people without masks,” the CDC recommended in a series of tweets this week.

The CDC advises people who aren’t fully vaccinated to gather only with those they live with or attend outdoor events while maintaining six feet of distance from others, CNN reported.

The CDC still recommends that fully vaccinated people wear masks while in public and continue other coronavirus-related safety precautions.

As of Friday, the U.S. has administered roughly 158 million vaccine doses administered in the U.S., with 58 million people fully vaccinated, according to a CDC tracker.
