If vaccines are coming, do I still have to wear a mask, keep a distance, and avoid gatherings?

Yes. We all need to do our part to stay safe while we wait for vaccines to be widely available, and for a sufficient portion of the population to be vaccinated. Our county, like everyone else, will receive a limited supply to start. More will come over time. It may take many months before everyone in Plumas County who wants a vaccine has gotten one. This means we all need to work together to keep our risk of COVID-19 low. We can do that by protecting ourselves and others by wearing face masks, keeping our distance, and not gathering in groups.
