It is your choice on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19: choose to get vaccinated or continue wearing a mask and following physical distancing requirements – we recommend choosing to get vaccinated. The updated CDC guidance for fully vaccinated people makes clear that vaccines are the best tool to protect yourself and everyone around you.

What are you waiting for? #TakeYourShotOR
We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday weekend. Reminder that is it best to stay close to home and to have activities outside if choosing to have a small gathering this weekend. The best thing you can do to protect yourself and others is to get vaccinated as soon as possible! And if not fully vaccinated, wear a mask and maintain 6ft of distance from those not in your household. Check with local businesses on their mask polices prior to entering one without your mask. With all of us working together to keep cases low, we are getting closer and closer to the end of risk level restrictions.
