On May 11, 2023, the Biden Administration formally declared the conclusion of the federal COVID-19 public health emergency. Embracing full commitment appears significantly different now than it did at the onset of the pandemic. The world has resumed its usual rhythm – businesses are operational, mask mandates are over, and the joy of reuniting with cherished individuals and places. Gratefully, the extensive administration of vaccinations globally has led to a drastic decline in both hospitalizations and fatalities compared to the peaks witnessed in 2020 and 2021. Despite these positive developments, our community remains still at risk.
The CDC has made things plain and simple, every American over the age of 6 months old should get the newest vaccine against COVID, especially ahead of fall/winter months.

Four Ways to Keep Yourself Safe
- Get Vaccinated. Millions of lives have been saved since the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines, and they are still the safest and most effective way to protect yourself.
- COVID-19 Hygiene Still Applies. Washing your hands for just 30 seconds cuts the risks of contracting and spreading viruses in every setting year-round.
- Masking Makes a Difference. After three years of vigilance, it feels great to take a breather from constant masking. However, we can still protect ourselves in situations when we’re at higher risk of contracting COVID-19, such as on crowded flights, at large events, or in hospitals. And, be sure to wear a mask around the most vulnerable in our lives, such as immunocompromised or elderly loved ones.
- Feeling Sick? Get Tested. When we’re under the weather, it’s easy to blame it on seasonal allergies or the common cold, but the only way to rule out a COVID-19 infection is to get tested. Testing is widely available and free. If you’re feeling unwell, get a test today.
