Vaccination

CDC Recommends Indoor Masking for Vaccinated Individuals in High-Risk Counties
To prevent the further spread of the Delta variant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that fully vaccinated people wear masks indoors in areas where the COVID-19 virus has substantial or high community transmission. According to the CDC COVID Data Tracker https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view, Orange County currently has moderate, but not substantial or high, community transmission.

Concerning Trends in Cases and Hospitalizations
After weeks at some of the lowest levels of COVID-19 since last year, the number of COVID-19 cases in Orange County have begun to rise again. An uptick is not unexpected as restrictions on activities are relaxed, but the rising numbers should prompt all of us – vaccinated as well as unvaccinated – to take extra precautions. The three W’s- washing your hands, wearing a mask, and waiting six feet always lower the risk of transmission. However, vaccination is the most effective tool against COVID-19. People who are unvaccinated are at risk for infection by the more contagious and potentially more dangerous Delta variant. Getting a free, effective and safe COVID-19 vaccine is easy.
