Like many we all have been daydreaming for months about what life will be like once we gets the COVID-19 vaccine. Hug our children, Grandkids and get back to living life.
Except now that we have received the vaccine, we are finding out it’s not that simple. The vaccine isn’t a ‘get out of jail free card’ we still need to wear a mask, wash our hands and social distance.
Once you have received the second dose of the vaccine protection is estimated to be about 95% two weeks after the second dose.
It’s still unknown how well the vaccine will keep the virus from spreading. It is too soon to tell if a couples who has been vaccinated should be ok to share a meal together indoors. The data so far shows they probably won’t transmit much, if any, of the virus. Since covid arrived here almost a year ago, the coronavirus has been all about risk. The vaccines are adding a new layer to that, even as they offer hope that the end is near for a pandemic that has killed many.
Current guidelines recommend outdoor dining for restaurant’s with small group. If you want to go to your family’s house guidelines is family only and small group with outdoor dining and activities. Any activities with large group with increased risk of exposure may result in self isolation.
San Clemente Villas will continue to provide updates to Residents and family members as guidelines and recommendations change from the Health Department and Community Care Licensing.
