Staying Covid Free
Getting the Covid vaccine reduces the risk of hospitalization and death, but doesn’t eliminate the chance of getting a mild case. Covid will remain a significant health risk until a majority of the population is vaccinated later this year. Meantime, stay safe by delaying travel, dining at home, exercising outdoors, shopping on-line, and streaming entertainment. Continue working remotely and maintaining personal hygiene with distancing, hand cleaning and masking. Improve indoor air quality at your home and office by ventilating with outdoor air and using UV air cleaners. Learn how to get vaccinated in your area by using AARP’s state-by-state directory. Read articles about life after vaccination and Covid’s future as an endemic. Consult resources at Covid websites maintained by the CDC, Mayo Clinic, NIH, WebMD, and WHO.
