The recent surge of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is due to how easily this variant spreads. But there are things you can do to help! Protect your loved ones and help keep vital community functions running smoothly – like hospitals and other essential businesses – by taking these simple steps:

  • Wear a mask in public places. Masks offer protection from all the variants of the virus.
  • Get vaccinated, if you haven’t already. Everyone 5 years and older can get fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Get a booster shot at the recommended time. Check out this chart to see when you should get your booster based on the shot you received.
  • Stay home when you feel sick.
