When it comes to COVID-19, don’t let your guard down

YNHHS continues to see increasing levels of COVID transmission across Connecticut and Rhode Island. YNHHS Infection Prevention experts say, be thoughtful about how you protect yourself and your family:
  • Be cautious about indoor events where physical distancing may be difficult
  • Wear masks even if not required
  • Make sure your vaccinations are up to date, and if eligible, get your second booster
