Harm reduction measures still matter. Vaccines are our best tool to beat the pandemic, and harm reduction precautions are still prudent to keep people safe, especially in group settings, including offices, group homes and schools. Vaccines are not 100% effective, and youth under age 5 are not yet eligible for the vaccine, so taking precautions such as wearing a mask protects people from becoming seriously ill with COVID-19. Safety precautions will further reduce children’s risk for getting COVID-19, including:
- Wearing masks
- Making sure offices, classrooms and other buildings have good ventilation
- Staying home when sick
Myth: COVID-19 vaccines do not protect against the delta variant.
Fact: Vaccines are highly effective at preventing COVID-19, including the delta variant, which is nearly twice as contagious as the original COVID-19. The greatest risk is among unvaccinated people. Some fully vaccinated people get COVID-19, but they are far less likely to get sick enough to be hospitalized or die.
If you’ve been exposed: Follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.
