If you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that you can "resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing" as of May 13, 2021.
This new mandate for fully vaccinated Americans only applies to places that aren't under "federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations" for mask-wearing or distancing. This includes places like local businesses and workplaces, for example.

The CDC does outline which outdoor and indoor activities fully vaccinated people can participate in without masks. Outdoor activities include small outdoor gatherings, dining outdoors, crowded outdoor events, and more.
As for indoor activities, fully vaccinated people can get hair cuts, work out at the gym, eat inside restaurants, and go to shopping centers, museums, small indoor gatherings, worship services and more without wearing masks.
According to the CDC, you qualify as "fully vaccinated" if it's been two weeks since your second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks since getting a single-dose vaccine.
