The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers
helpful instruction for older adults and people at higher risk for serious illness, including details about vaccination, face covering usage and activity levels. These instructions also provide helpful insights for those who live in congregate settings such as skilled nursing facilities and assisted living homes.
Older unvaccinated adults are more likely to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19. The CDC also provides
information on risks and vaccine information.
