Public health states “As we continue to see a rise in positive cases, we are strongly encouraging the public to get vaccinated for COVID-19. While we are seeing breakthrough vaccinated cases, those who are vaccinated are far less likely to experience severe symptoms and become hospitalized. The risk of severe illness and hospitalization is higher amongst those who are unvaccinated. We also strongly encourage continued safety measures such as masking in public settings, getting tested if you have been exposed or have attended large gatherings, and staying home when you are sick. All of these measures will help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community.”
