Ending the COVID-19 emergency declarations does not mean the virus has been eradicated. The Connecticut Department of Public Health continues to remind us all that we have the best tools available to stay healthy and that's how we've made so much progress from where we were three years ago. Residents still should get vaccinated, get the updated booster, use at-home tests, stay home when they're sick, and wear a high-quality mask when respiratory viruses are circulating at high levels in their community. 

While vaccines remain the most effective way to prevent COVID-19 infection, there are also treatments available for people who are infected with disease. These treatments may help individuals avoid severe illness, hospitalization, and death. For more information, visit Test to Treat site locator.
