UPDATE: COVID-19 is now being treated the same as other respiratory illnesses!

What’s changed?

The CDC has released new guidance for dealing with common respiratory viruses, which includes COVID-19.

The released guidance states that individuals may return to normal activities when symptoms have been improving for a continuous 24 hours AND any fever has been gone for 24 hours without use of fever reducing medication.

When returning to normal activities the individual should take extra precautions for the next five days to ensure the safety of the people around them. Some examples of extra precautions include wearing a mask, keeping distance, and testing when available. 

What hasn’t changed?

The best way to prevent you and your loved ones from getting sick is to stay up to date on vaccinations, practice good hygiene, and stay home when you’re sick. If you are still in need of your COVID-19, flu, or other vaccines, use the link below to schedule your appointment today.
