DON’T LET YOUR GUARD DOWN

COVID-19 Infection Rates are Rising

Keep Social Distancing

Keep your circle of contacts small, even during the holidays. When you are around others, stay 6 feet apart and wear a mask.

Stay Home if You’re Sick

If you’re sick, don’t go to work or school. Get tested and isolate until you know your results. If you have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19, stay home and away from others for 10 days.

GET THE FACTS

The COVID-19 Vaccine Is Here!

The first COVID-19 vaccines are here. While availability is limited in the initial weeks of the vaccination program, more and more New Yorkers will become eligible as the vaccine supply increases. 

Two vaccines have been authorized by the FDA. The first, developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, was approved unanimously by New York State’s independent COVID-19 Clinical Advisory Task Force on December 10 and formally authorized by the FDA on December 11, 2020. The second, developed by Moderna, was authorized by the FDA and approved unanimously by the Clinical Advisory Task Force on December 18, 2020.

While the vaccination process is underway, every New Yorker should wear a mask, social distance and avoid small and large gatherings.

COVID-19 Symptoms

Onondaga County Health Commissioner Dr. Indu Gupta explains to watch for symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, and/or difficulty breathing until Sunday, March 29, which would be the end of the 14 day incubation period.”

, “If symptoms do develop, stay home and call your doctor for further guidance about testing. If you are elderly, have underlying medical conditions, or are immunocompromised, call your doctor early even if your illness is mild. In an emergency call 911. If you have symptoms and do not have a doctor, call Upstate University Hospital’s Triage Line at 315.464.3979 and you will be advised about testing.”
