COVID-19 cases have been on the rise since the relaxing of community and workplace transmission protections in mid-June, abetted by the highly contagious Delta variant.
As a result, the County has taken the following steps:
- Recommending the wearing of face coverings in indoor public areas for everyone (regardless of vaccination status)
- Urging employers to consider implementing workplace COVID-19 vaccine requirements for all employees
For any employees who are not yet fully vaccinated, employers must require and enforce masking under current state law. In addition, employers are encouraged to require frequent COVID-19 testing of unvaccinated employees.
Vaccinating as many people as possible, as soon as possible, continues to be our best defense against severe COVID-19 infection, and the harm it can do to our region. Vaccines are safe, effective, free, and widely available to everyone 12 and older. Find a site near you by visiting www.sccFreeVax.org or calling 2-1-1.
People with the following symptoms (regardless of vaccination status) are encouraged to speak with a trusted healthcare provider, and consider getting tested for COVID-19:
