To minimize spread of COVID-19, DCPH asks unvaccinated community members to:

  • Wash and/or sanitize hands frequently
  • Stay home if you are symptomatic, have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19, or are awaiting COVID-19 test results
  • If you are 12 years old or over, get your COVID-19 vaccine

If you are fully vaccinated, CDC recommends mask use in public indoor spaces.

If you are moderately to severely immunocompromised, please consider an additional dose of mRNA vaccine after your initial two doses.
