Preventing Spread of COVID-19

  • COVID-19 vaccination is the best way to prevent becoming ill with COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a booster dose of Pfizer COVID-19 for individuals 65 and older and specific at-risk groups at least 6 months after completing their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series.  CDC has announced available data will be evaluated in the coming weeks to make additional recommendations for other populations or people who got the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
  • In addition to vaccination, Linn County Public Health continues to recommend the use of other mitigation approaches including staying home when you're sick, washing your hands, and wearing masks and social distancing as a layered approach to make virus spread less likely. 
  • In areas with substantial and high transmission, CDC recommends that everyone (including fully vaccinated individuals) wear a mask in public indoor settings to help prevent spread of Delta and to keep your family safe. Linn County is in a high transmission or "red" area as defined by the CDC.
