Wearing A Mask

The most common question about masks right now is, "Should I wear a mask if I have received my COVID vaccine." The overwhelming answer to this question is, yes. Wearing a mask not only protects you, it also protects your loved ones and others around you. It takes two weeks after completing your second dose of the COVID Vaccine to reach 95% protection and even then there is still a 5% chance you can be infected. A bigger concern in not wearing a mask is for your loved ones and those around you. If you have completed the COVID vaccine you may not display symptoms when exposed, therefore bringing the virus to those around you who are not yet protected. Make sure to continue wearing a mask and washing or sanitizing your hands often.
