I’ve been keeping up with announcements about this on the Bridge to Becoming facebook page, but I would write this up here too:
It is July, almost August, 2021. We are still in a pandemic and the delta variant is endemic all over the place.
I am too aware of how Long COVID can affect people even with mild cases.
I encourage all my patients –who can get vaccinated safely– do so as soon as possible with all required doses, and also wear masks in indoor and crowded places. I am practicing and living in Multnomah County and this matches their public health recommendations.
Even when cases were very low, masks are still required at medical offices because immune-compromised and young (and all the other reasons for not being vaccinated) people come to those places.
Thanks for joining me in keeping us all safe!
