As pandemic restrictions begin to loosen, summer holiday plans begin to take shape.
Dr. Sarah Boyd, an infectious disease specialist with Saint Luke’s Health System, talked to FOX4, recommending that vaccinated people should continue wearing masks at outdoor gatherings, also a new mask guideline from the CDC.
“I think we need to stay vigilant. Not everyone has been vaccinated,” Dr. Boyd said. “If you’re masked, and vaccinated and able to socially distance, that would be a much safer group gathering than maybe we’ve been able to have during the past year and a half during this pandemic.”
Saint Luke’s Health System has opened its availability for COVID-19 vaccinations to everyone aged 16 and up, even if you aren't a Saint Luke's patient. You can register for those appointments here.
