what actions to take if they are sick or test positive for the virus. COVID-19 continues to circulate globally, however, with so many tools available to us for reducing COVID-19 severity, there is significantly less risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death compared to earlier in the pan- demic. “We’re in a stronger place today as a nation, with more tools — like vaccination, boosters, and treatments — to pro- tect ourselves, and our communities, from severe illness from COVID-19,” said Greta Massetti, PhD, MPH, MMWR Author. “We also have a better understanding of how to protect people from being exposed to the virus, like wear- ing high-quality masks, testing, and improved ventilation. This guidance acknowledges that the pandemic is not over, but also helps us move to a point where COVID-19 no longer severely disrupts our daily lives.” In support of this update CDC is continuing to promote the importance of being up to date with vaccination to protect people against serious illness, hospitalization, and death. Protection provided by the current vaccine against symptomatic infection and transmission is less than that against severe disease and diminishes over time, espe- cially against the currently circulating variants. For this rea- son, it is important to stay up to date, especially as new vaccines become available. CDC will continue to focus efforts on preventing severe illness and post-COVID conditions, while ensuring every- one have the tools, they need to lower their risk.
