remains in our communities, remains very contagious, and puts people in
Wisconsin at-risk of getting sick, particularly those in long-term care
facilities. Providing a safe environment for our members and staff is our top priority.
Masks are one of the most effective strategies to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Masks reduce the release of infectious particles into the air when someone speaks, coughs, or sneezes, including someone who has COVID-19 but feels well. It is important it is for people to continue to follow the Safer at Home guidance. By staying home as much as possible, social distancing (stay at least 6 feet away from other people) and wearing masks when we are out, and washing our hands thoroughly and regularly, we are collectively helping to keep our community healthy, and in turn, keeping the veterans and others who live in our Homes healthy.
We continue to ask everyone to please get vaccinated and sign up for a booster shot. The booster shot has now been approved for anyone 18 years old or older. Please visit https://vaccinefinder.org to find a location near you.
