GET YOUR FLU SHOTS NOW
- Public health officials are strongly urging residents to contact their health care provider or pharmacy to get vaccinated against the flu as soon as possible. Once vaccinated, it takes about two weeks to offer protection.
- Getting the flu shot each year is important but reducing illness and hospitalization from flu is even more critical this year to protect frontline health care workers and hospital systems who will continue to care for people with COVID-19 and other illnesses.
- Both the flu and COVID-19 are respiratory illnesses, but until there is a steady vaccine supply against COVID-19, the way to prevent these two viruses from circulating at the same time is to get your flu vaccine now.
MANDATORY FACE COVERINGS ORDER REMAIN IN EFFECT
- Masks or face coverings MUST be worn by all persons within the Town while visiting or working in any businesses, establishment, or residential buildings. This includes, but is not limited to, restaurants, retail establishments, hotels, grocery stores, gyms, pharmacies, indoor recreational facilities, houses of worship, government buildings, multifamily buildings, and vehicles for hire.
- Face coverings MUST also be worn by all persons in outdoor public places where social distancing of 6 feet or more is not possible.
- MASKS MUST BE WORN PROPERLY – Please ensure masks and other acceptable face coverings are worn completely over the NOSE and MOUTH when in the presence of others. When removing masks, only touch the strings or ear loops. Do not touch the actual face covering to avoid contaminating your hands. Masks should be washed or disposed after wearing them.
- With Phase 3 re-opening now in effect, it is extremely important that residents, employees, and visitors continue to AVOID THE THREE C’s – CLOSED spaces with poor ventilation, CROWDED spaces with many people nearby, and CLOSE-CONTACT settings.
CELEBRATING HALLOWEEN SAFELY
- Many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses. There are several safer, alternative ways to participate in Halloween. If you may have COVID-19 or you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should not participate in in-person Halloween festivities and should not give out candy to trick-or-treaters.
- The Town of Palm Beach strongly encourages parents to follow CDC guidelines when planning Halloween activities for their children and avoid the traditional door-to-door trick or treating.
