COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease)

On Thursday May 13, the CDC released updated guidance that fully vaccinated people can resume activities they did before the pandemic, including participating in indoor and outdoor activities – large or small – without wearing a mask or physically distancing.

Mask wearing continues to be an important COVID-19 mitigation strategy in public transportation, schools, health care settings, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, and other settings where additional regulations still exist, regardless of vaccination status. DHS is currently working on updating webpages and publications to include updated guidance for fully vaccinated people. We continue to encourage everyone to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
