Masks Protect You & Me

The CDC has shared some of its lastest updates on COVID-19 and how you can continue helping stop the spread of the coronavirus:

Masks Protect You & Me

Masks are an additional step to prevent people from getting and spreading COVID-19. They provide a barrier that keeps respiratory droplets from spreading. When we all wear masks, we take care of each other and everyone is protected.

For the most protection, take all these steps.

  • Wear a mask
  • Stay 6 feet apart
  • Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated places
  • Wash your hands

V-Safe After Vaccination Health Checker

V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine. This information helps CDC monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in near real-time. Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you and get more information.


Isolate If You Are Sick

Isolation is used to separate people infected with COVID-19 from those who are not infected. People who are in isolation should stay home until it’s safe for them to be around others.

If you think or know you had COVID-19 and had symptoms you can be with others after:

  • At least 10 days since symptoms first appeared AND
  • At least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication AND
  • Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving

**Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation.
