As we work through these trying times, here are a few of resources to keep in mind. Check back regularly as we will regularly be updating to better support your needs.
Omicron Updates - Jan 2022
The Omicron variant is setting daily records in case counts and transmission, and this comes at a time with updated quarantine guidance from the CDC. Depending on your vaccination & booster status, this will vary. Please read this bulletin for additional insights. COVID-19 test sites are backlogged or offline due to their own staffing concerns; please exercise patience in booking appointments in your area. Vaccines and doctor ordered tests continue to be covered with no cost share. To report a COVID diagnosis or exposure, please contact our safety team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines and continued CDC updates may leave you with questions. Are they safe? Is one vaccine better to get than another? When and how often can I get vaccinated? These resources below can help you stay informed, make a plan and address any concerns you may have. For quick reference, visit the CVS Health COVID-19 page or the CDC site on COVID-19.
