Businesses play an important role in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and keeping customers and employees safe. 

People who are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccines and people with underlying health conditions or certain risk factors are at higher risk of having severe illness from COVID-19.  Learn more information about the COVID-19 vaccine. To access your vaccine record with a QR code, click here. 

For customers:

As COVID-19 continues to spread in communities, please be aware of the risk of visiting different public settings. When deciding whether to go out, consider factors such as:

  • COVID-19 Community Levels
  • How closely and for how long you will be with other people
  • The number of different people you will be with
  • How well an area is ventilated
  • Whether other people will be up to date on COVID-19 vaccines

Your vaccination status, choice/ability to wear a mask and your risk for developing severe illness from COVID-19 are important to think about as well.
