My understanding is that individuals after vaccination need to follow the same public health guidance as non-vaccinated individuals.   Although the vaccine is 95% effective in limiting symptomatic disease,  it is not known to what extent it decreases the risk of asymptomatic disease or transmission.   For those reasons a fully vaccinated HCW who was a COVID contact should still be furloughed from work.  Is anyone doing anything different?
