Updated COVID-19 Guidance

The Washington County Health Department (WCHD) strongly urges all community members who are not yet fully vaccinated to wear masks in indoor group settings and to get vaccinated if they are eligible. 

COVID-19 vaccinations are available to anyone age 5 and older.  For more information or to make a COVID-19 vaccination appointment, please visit WashCoVax.com or call 240-313-3456.

Additionally, WCHD recommends that all community members, even those who are vaccinated, continue to take actions to protect themselves and prevent the spread of COVID-19, including:

  • Wearing a well fitted mask indoors among people who do not live with you
  • Avoiding large crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces
  • Washing your hands often with soap and water or hand sanitizer
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick, or others if you are sick

Community members showing any sign or symptom of COVID-19 should get tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection. Asymptomatic persons exposed to COVID-19 should also get tested, regardless of vaccination status.
