Seven Hills Foundation Mask Policy - August 2, 2022

Mask-req-thumbAt Seven Hills Foundation & Affiliates, as of August 2, 2022 masks are required at every program site and while in the community supporting individuals. This policy is based on individuals’ vulnerabilities and community transmission rates. We will continue to monitor our COVID-19 infection rate to determine when we reach a level where we may return to a mask optional status, but for now, masking is our best defense. Please work with your supervisor to determine the type of mask needed for your program and please post this PDF.

Benefits of Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine - September 8, 2022

There are many benefits of getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

  • COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States are safe and are effective at protecting people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and even dying.
  • Getting children and teens vaccinated against COVID-19 can help keep them from getting very sick if they do get COVID-19.
  • Vaccinating children can also help relieve the strain on families by providing greater confidence in children participating in childcare, school, and other activities.
  • COVID-19 vaccines can offer added protection to people who had COVID-19, including protection against being hospitalized from a new infection, especially as variants continue to emerge.
  • As with vaccines for other diseases, people are protected best when they stay up to date with the recommended number of doses and boosters, when eligible.

Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines and Boosters - September 8, 2022

CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, including all primary series doses and boosters for their age group.

  • People ages 6 months through 4 years should get all COVID-19 primary series doses.
  • People ages 5 years and older should get all primary series doses, and the booster dose recommended for them by CDC, if eligible.
    • People ages 5 years to 11 years are currently recommended to get the original (monovalent) booster.
    • People ages 12 years and older are recommended to receive one updated Pfizer or Moderna (bivalent) booster.
      • This includes people who have received all primary series doses and people who have previously received one or more original (monovalent) boosters.
      • At this time, people aged 12 years to 17 years can only receive the updated Pfizer bivalent booster.
