In brief: Safe as you make it

To be safe from exacerbations of celiac disease you must learn to read labels.
Not all foods are labeled as gluten-free. You must be able to detect gluten-containing substances on ingredient lists. For example white flour is a form or wheat flour. Meet with a nutritionist to learn how best to do this. Go to the store with a partner & read labels together for practice.
