Will getting the vaccine allow me to stop wearing masks and resume large gatherings?

No. This vaccine will significantly increase our arsenal as we fight COVID-19 and help us win this battle. As we know there will be a limited supply of vaccine initially, it will still be essential to rely on the tools that we know work to fight this disease. These tools continue to be:

  • Continue to wear a mask
  • Maintain social distancing
  • Refrain from holding or attending large gatherings
  • Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer
  • If you are sick, stay home and away from others to limit exposure
  • If you feel you have COVID-19 symptoms, get tested to limit potential spread
