For many of us, December is often a time of celebration full of gatherings with family and friends. In addition to COVID-19, other respiratory viruses like the flu and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) are circulating on Cape Cod and beyond at high levels that we have not seen in several years.
How can you protect yourself and your family and friends this holiday season?
Staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, including bivalent COVID-19 boosters and the annual influenza vaccine, can help you, your family, and your friends to more safely ring in a healthy New Year.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also has information about preventing sickness from COVID-19, the flu, and RSV. When possible, please take precautions.
NOTE: Every U.S. household is eligible to order 4 free at-home COVID-19 tests this winter. To order yours, visit https://www.covid.gov/tests.
