If you are someone who is in a high-risk group, talk to your healthcare provider about the risks and benefits and consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine once it becomes available to you. That’s the best thing you can do to prevent COVID-19 from entering the household.
While you’re waiting for the vaccine, it’s important to continue to maintain social distancing protocols, wear masks and wash hands. If you do become sick, isolate yourself and get tested for COVID-19.
Everyone has a little bit of pandemic fatigue at this point and it’s exceedingly difficult to continue to stay home. Unfortunately, we still have a lot of community transmission not only across the country but in the state of Connecticut. As we roll out the vaccine, better days are ahead. But we still need to be vigilant for the next few months.
