The news about a vaccine for COVID-19 is really exciting but it’s going to take time to get everyone vaccinated. Until then, it’s important to control the spread of COVID-19 through other measures, which are just as important as a vaccine to end the pandemic.
Wear a mask when you leave your home or are around others from outside your household. Wash your hands frequently. Keep six feet or more from people outside your household. If you are sick, stay home. For now, stay vigilant to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Bloomington and beyond.
Following the latest CDC guidelines will help you, your family and others in the community. It’s the neighborly thing to do. We want to make sure as few Bloomington residents get COVID-19 as possible.
“The interest in vaccination is great to see. We are aiming to provide vaccine to as many Bloomington residents as we can, but it will take some time as distribution ramps up,” Public Health Specialist Amanda Lemke said.
The COVID-19 pandemic and news about vaccine development and distribution is changing rapidly.
