08/01/2021 Update on COVID-19
MASKs will again be required for EVERYONE entering LifeForce
We will again require everyone entering LifeForce, including those who have been fully vaccinated or have had Covid, to wear a mask. This decision comes after the CDC made the following points on July 29, 2021:
- Even fully vaccinated people can carry and spread the Covid-19 Delta variant.
- The duration of immunity after having had Covid is still in question and re-infection is possible.
- The Delta variant is more transmissible than the common cold, the 1918 “Spanish” flu, smallpox, or Ebola.
- Only 47% of New Hanover County is fully vaccinated. (79.5% for those 65 and older)
Furthermore, please be aware that it is neither illegal nor a HIPAA violation to ask your vaccination status or require you to wear a mask
(North Carolina Executive Order 215, May 14, 2021).
As a matter of public health, we choose to err on the side of caution.
We choose to err on the side of your health and safety.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
