Do I need to continue wearing a mask after I receive my vaccine?

Yes, public health orders, restrictions and guidelines remain in place for everyone, regardless if you have received the vaccine. After immunizations begin, it will still be important to wash your hands, adhere to physical distancing guidelines, wear a mask, and stay home when sick.

We still don’t know for certain how long the protection lasts from COVID-19 vaccines or how well they work in preventing asymptomatic infection or reducing transmission of the virus. This means that all current enhanced safety measures and COVID-19 protocols will stay in place until a significant percentage of the population has been vaccinated for COVID-19 or until it is deemed safe to relax those rules.
