    The Latest News

    Important Notice on Masking

    Evidence indicates that masks, along with vaccination and physical distancing, are still the best ways to slow the spread of COVID-19. With highly contagious variants like Omicron, high-quality KN95/KF94 masks, and N95 respirators, are more effective than cloth and surgical masks. In late February, the CDC announced it would use different metrics to support masking and other COVID mitigation guidance. People in areas of high transmission, regardless of vaccination status, should wear masks indoors.
