Illinois continues to respond to the public health disaster caused by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Numerous variants have emerged over the course of the pandemic and continue to emerge with different transmissibility and degrees of severity. At this time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) current guidance recommends universal masking only in communities with high community COVID-19 levels. Champaign county has been and is at a low degree of transmission.
In accordance with current CDC guidance, Promise Healthcare will no longer mandate universal masking beginning Monday, April 17, 2023.
Individuals may choose to wear a mask at any time to protect themselves or those around them from spread of COVID-19.
We will continue to follow CDC guidance which recommends that people with symptoms, a positive COVID-19 test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 wear a mask.
Individuals not up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations or within 90 days of COVID-19 infection, should wear a mask for 10 days following exposure to COVID-19.
Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 should stay at home and isolate for at least 5 days after testing positive and wear a mask until day 10.
Vaccines continue to be the safest and most effective way to protect from COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths. Promise Healthcare offers the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are approved for anyone six months and older. We also offer the 3-dose series of the Pfizer vaccine for children six months to four years old.
