Current Transmission Level: HIGH
Based on updated guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we recommend that everyone, including individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19, wear a mask in public indoor settings.
As the number of COVID-19 cases has continued to increase with the spread of the Delta variant, this recommendation is based on the Fairfax Health District moving from substantial level of COVID-19 transmission to high transmission.
Guidance about COVID-19 boosters is expected from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Virginia Department of Health (VDH) later this week. Information will be shared here as it is available.
Currently third doses are available for people who are immunocompromised. The FDA and CDC have not yet issued guidance on whether the general public should get COVID-19 vaccine booster doses.
