Medical experts and scientists encourage us to take a variety of precautions to protect ourselves and others based on current COVID-19 community levels. These efforts help ensure we make the most of Our Shot to End COVID.


If you have not been vaccinated, we encourage you to do so to protect yourself, your family and the community. Many vaccination sites offer weekend or extended hours and don’t require appointments, making it even easier to get vaccinated.

Many states have relaxed or lifted mask mandates. This is encouraging, but we must stay informed about the number of COVID-19 cases and follow new recommendations and rules as a result of any changes. While mandates are no longer in place, some people may still choose to wear a mask as an added level of protection. It’s important that people take any steps they need to feel safe.

Physical Distancing

Be aware of changing recommendations regarding physical distancing, capacity limits and gathering in groups. Spending time with others is important for our mental and emotional well-being. Just do so in a way that doesn’t put your physical health at risk.

Hand Washing

Washing your hands is easy, and it’s one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends following these five steps when washing your hands.

  • Wet your hands with clean, running water and apply soap.
  • Lather the front and the back of your hands, between your fingers and under your nails.
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
