Rising COVID-19 variant cases have prompted health officials in Yolo County to recommend indoor masking for everyone including people who are fully vaccinated. Citing concerns about the highly infectious Delta variant, the county's health officer is urging everyone 65 and older to wear masks, even if they have received both doses of the vaccine. Dr. Aimee Sisson is recommending that fully vaccinated people also get tested for COVID-19, following exposure to someone with the virus, even if they have no symptoms.
“Vaccines remain the absolute best form of protection against COVID-19, and I implore everyone who is eligible to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Yolo County Health Officer Dr. Aimee Sisson in a statement.
It's been almost two months since the state has opened back up fully, removing most social distancing and mask requirements. Yolo County is still offering multiple vaccination programs including one for in-home vaccinations. For more information about getting the in-home vaccine, call Yolo County at (530) 666-8665.
