Top Things You Need to Know
  1. New variants of the virus are expected to occur. Taking measures to reduce the spread of infection, including getting a COVID-19
    vaccine, is the best way to slow the emergence of new variants.
  2. Vaccines reduce your risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19.
  3. All COVID-19 tests can detect known variants, but they will not tell you which variant you have. 

Vaccines 

  • FDA approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines protect against Delta and other known variants.
  • Vaccines reduce your risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19.
  • We don’t yet know how effective the vaccines will be against new variants that may arise.

Symptoms 

  • All variants cause similar COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Some variants, such as the Alpha and Delta variants, may cause more severe illness and death.

Masks 

  • Wearing a mask is an effective way to reduce the spread of earlier forms of the virus, the Delta variant and other known variants.
  • People who are not fully vaccinated should to take steps to protect themselves, including wearing a mask indoors in public at all levels of community transmission.
  • People who have an underlying medical condition, a weakened immune system, or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may not have as much protection even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take steps recommended for people who are not fully vaccinated, including wearing a mask.

 

Testing 

  • Tests used to diagnose COVID-19 may not tell you which variant you have.
  • Tests can detect new variants. As new variants emerge, scientists will continue to evaluate how well tests work to detect current infection.
