COVID-19 Emergency

National, State and Local Emergencies are still in effect.

Updated Aug 8, 2021
 

Because of the rapid spread of the Delta variant - ALL our ICU beds are in use- it is strongly recommended that everyone, including the vaccinated, wears masks indoors or in crowded settings. 

All fully vaccinated people in California will be  relieved from many Covid19 restrictions on June 15, 2021.  
See https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/ for details (Select Lake).

The main restrictions which will remain are for unvaccinated and for "large indoor gatherings".

Everyone is still required to wear masks in "higher risk" settings such as public transport, K-12 schools, healthcare settings.
See  Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings at https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/guidance-for-face-coverings.aspx

Vaccines are widely available.

From the CA Dep of Public Health (3/13/20) :

How can people protect themselves?

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). This occurs through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person breaths, talks, coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the nose and lungs. Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Every person has a role to play. So much of protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense: 

  • Washing hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. If surfaces are dirty, clean them using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
  • Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wear a Face Covering in stores, and when you are closer than 6 feet to another. 
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
  • Staying away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough, or a sudden loss of smell.
  • Following guidance from public health officials.

Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.
