Dr. Cirino discussed what it is like to be an infectious diseases physician. He brought up some important recommendations to balancing life in the profession of medicine.
On Masks and Vaccination
The CDC has recently issued new guidelines for individuals that have been fully vaccinated. On account of the high efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines, individuals may now gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart. This includes indoor exposure in those unvaccinated and low risk for severe COVID-19. Also, masks are no longer felt to be necessary for those already vaccinated who participate outdoors in activities, gather in small groups, or dine with friends.
Mask use in indoor public spaces is still recommended for all. Full vaccination status is considered 2 weeks after the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccination or the dose of the J & J vaccination. Here is a link for the CDC’s updated recommendations.
For those individuals that haven’t yet received their vaccinations, Dr. Cirino encourages them to schedule it as soon as they can. It is the best way to halt the pandemic and return to a safe and unhindered life for all.
Here is a public service announcement from Dr. Cirino about the importance of masks when he was health officer at Marion Country in Oregon.
