With the onset of colder weather and the introduction of the new omicron variant of COVID-19, the Colorado Medical Society would like to remind you what you can do for yourself and your loved ones to minimize the risk of becoming infected. We also encourage businesses and workplaces to adopt policies and procedures that will best protect both their workforces and the public.
In the interest of clarity and brevity, here is a list of essential actions you can take to protect yourself and others from getting ill with COVID-19:
Indoor places where you must take off your face covering, such as restaurants and bars, and places where you may be indoors for a longer period of time with people of unknown vaccination status, such as theaters, concert halls and some workplaces, have been shown to be areas of high risk of infection transmission. Because of this, mandatory or voluntary policies requiring proof of vaccination, face coverings, adequate ventilation and appropriate distancing are examples of best practices.
Stay safe, and have a wonderful and healthy holiday season!
