CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: March 30, 2021
- Getting your FREE vaccination is the best protection from COVID-19 and variants of the virus.
- The vaccine is readily available for anyone 18 and older (Moderna/J&J) and 16 and older (Pfizer).
- Call 1-866-395-1588 to register with Richland Public Health or to see the list of all local providers at richlandhealth.org/vaccine-registration.
- Vaccines are free to everyone (no proof of residency required).
You are considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after your 2nd dose in a 2-dose series of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines.
- 2 weeks after a single-dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
- If it has not been two weeks since your Johnson & Johnson vaccine or two weeks since your second dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, you are not fully vaccinated and should continue prevention steps: wear masks, social distance, avoid crowds.
- If you’ve been fully vaccinated, you can gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask.
- If you’ve been fully vaccinated, you can gather indoors with unvaccinated people from one other household (for example, visiting relatives who all live together) without masks, unless any of those people has an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
What Hasn’t Changed:
- Even if you’ve been fully vaccinated, you should still take steps to protect yourself and others by wearing a mask and socially distancing when in public, gathering with unvaccinated people from more than one household, and around persons at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
What We Are Still Learning:
- How effective the vaccines are against variants of the virus.
- How well the vaccines keep people from spreading COVID-19.
- How long COVID-19 vaccines can protect people.
Use trusted sites such as the CDC to stay-up-to-date on COVID-19 news. Continue to follow prevention steps such as masking, washing hands, and social distance. For updates, see richlandhealth.org or countonmerc.org
Where can I get tested?
Questions about quarantine?
How can I reduce the spread?
People at higher risk of severe illness should stay home and away from large groups of people as much as possible, including public places with lots of people and large gatherings where there will be close contact with others.
Those at higher risk include people who are 65 and older; people who live in a nursing home or long-term care facility; people with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma; people with serious heart conditions; people who are immunocompromised, including cancer treatment; and people of any age with sever obesity (BMI greater than or equal to 40) or certain underlying medical conditions, particularly if not well controlled, such as diabetes, renal failure or liver disease.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with your arm or your inner elbow, NOT your hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
- Wear a face covering in public settings.
The general public can also help by:
- Preventing the spread of misinformation by learning the facts about COVID-19. Understand that this is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available. Continue to visit the CDC website for the most current and accurate information.
- Fighting fear and stigma by understanding that you cannot tell if someone is at risk for spreading COVID-19 based on how they look. Viruses cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities or racial backgrounds. Treat everyone with compassion, kindness and respect.
Reporting a business that is non-compliant
Report non-compliance of masks in retail or business establishments.
File a complaint concerning a restaurant, salon, tattoo parlor, or fitness center.
