The Health Department has issued Health Order No. 25, to go into on August 31, 2021 at 12:00 p.m.

 

Health Order No. 25 includes the following changes:

 

1)            Renews the provisions of the Second Amended Health Order No. 24 and is effective August 31, 2021 to September 30, 2021, unless amended further.

2)            Explains the difference between a “third dose” for those with immunocompromised conditions and a “booster” for those who are fully vaccinated.  A “third dose” is available and recommended now for people with immunocompromised conditions. A “booster” dose is likely to become available this fall.
