The CDC says fully vaccinated people should get tested if they've been exposed to coronavirus.

That's also a change from a previous guideline, which said no testing was necessary unless symptoms develop.

The new recommendation says people should be tested three to five days after exposure, wear a mask indoors for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result.
