SAFRE’s Mask Policy
Per CDC guidelines, with the level of transmissions increasing and with Wake County’s level of community transmission being listed as high on the CDC’s Data Tracker website, there has been an added recommendation for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. It is also suggested that fully vaccinated people might choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission, particularly if they are immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease from COVID-19, or if they have someone in their household who is immunocompromised, at increased risk of severe disease or not fully vaccinated.
Per CDC guidelines, those individuals who remain unvaccinated should wear masks indoors at all times, as well as outdoors when being socially distanced is not an option.
