    Featured FAQ

    Do I still need to wear a mask if I have been fully vaccinated?
    Yes, state and federal guidance currently calls for those who are vaccinated to continue to follow all safety protocols, including wearing a mask and practicing physical distancing. Currently CDC guidance on the ability to eliminate masks once fully vaccinated only applies to small, at-home social settings and not public spaces or the workplace.
