Safe HAYVN Health & Safety Response
HAYVN Covid Policy Updates
(May 13, 2022)
Update based on CDC and State guidance:
As of 5/6/22, Fairfield County, Connecticut is categorized as a Medium – Yellow category as part of the CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels framework. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/community-levels.html
The CDC recommends that residents living or working in a Medium – Yellow category community stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, speak with their healthcare providers about the need to wear a mask, and get tested if they have symptoms.
HAYVN follows CDC guidance, which states that “[a]t all levels, people can wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.”
- Please note that we continue to ask that members and guests who have symptoms or test positive for the virus to refrain from entering the workspace and to follow CDC guidance for self-isolation or quarantine. See https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html#
