PA Unites Against COVID – Stopping the Spread of Omicron

Here’s a reminder from the Office of Administration and PA Unites Against COVID:

With the Omicron variant of COVID-19 spreading rapidly, it is important that we all continue to take steps to protect ourselves and others. They include:

  • Getting vaccinated – COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalization, and death.
  • Getting boosted – A booster dose of vaccine can substantially increase your level of protection against the virus.
  • Wearing a mask – It’s a good idea to wear a mask in public indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Getting tested – If you test positive, you should isolate and inform your close contacts about potential exposure.

Washing your hands frequently, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and maintaining physical distance can also reduce spread. For more tips, visit the PA Department of Health website.
