Latest news

Take these actions to help manage the spread of coronavirus and keep each other safe.

The best protection is to get vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people can now do more things safely and are helping reduce COVID-19 in the community.

Whether or not you are vaccinated, please wear masks in indoor public settings like grocery, retail, theaters, gyms, entertainment places, and faith-based gatherings. See the Masking guidance page for more information.

Wearing a mask in high-risk settings (such as crowded places) helps to protect everyone. It’s especially important to protect people that can’t get the full protection from the vaccine, such as young children and people with medical conditions who are less able to fight the virus.

Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who tests positive.

Keep activities small and outdoors if people who are unvaccinated will participate. The virus spreads easily indoors, so businesses and organizations can reduce the virus in the air by having good air flow indoors and using air filters.
