Returning to Normal, Staying Safe From COVID-19.
As life across the University returns to normal, getting vaccinated remains the best way to protect yourself and your community from COVID-19 and its variants.
The CDC recommends that everyone ages 5 and older get their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine, and receive a booster when eligible.. To be considered “fully vaccinated,” a person must have all primary doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. The CDC classifies anyone’s (ages 12 and up) vaccination status as “up to date” if they have all their primary doses along with a booster dose when eligible.
Currently, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the only one authorized for children ages 5-17.
While mask restrictions are being lifted, wearing a face covering is still an effective way to prevent infection from the COVID-19 virus along with vaccination.
If you are feeling ill and experience symptoms of fever, cough or other symptoms, it is recommended to quarantine and/or isolate at home, except to get medical care, until tested for COVID-19.
