Today we turn the page to a new chapter in America’s story — a time to come together, to heal, and to build back better. Congratulations to President @JoeBiden and Vice President @KamalaHarris. You are already making history, and the work is just beginning. #InaugurationDay

Today is a National #DayofService — a day of giving back. Support organizations like @CrossroadsRI & @RIFoodBank who are providing for our community in this time of immense need. Send a letter/care package to the frontlines. Today, let’s all find a way to make a positive impact.

The most important thing we all can do right now is protect our households from COVID-19. That means doing activities only with the people you live with. Please, stay safe this weekend.

It’s been a long ten months, but the end is in sight. We have robust systems in place, effective treatments, and vaccine. We know the playbook, and we know how to execute it. Now, we just need to stay the course.

Did you know you can use CDC’s COVID Data Tracker to see the number of predicted #COVID19 cases and deaths in your area? Use data to help make decisions to protect yourself, your family, and your community. See the COVID Data Tracker Forecasting tool: http://bit.ly/CDT_forecasting.

Everyone at the Center for Preparedness and Response is pleased to welcome Dr. Rochelle Walensky to @CDCgov as @CDCDirector! https://www.cdc.gov/about/leadership/director.htm

#WearAMask with 2 or more layers of fabric over your nose and mouth to help slow the spread of #COVID19. Make sure it fits snugly against the sides of your face. Fold gaiters to create 2 layers & take steps to prevent foggy glasses. More on masks: https://bit.ly/30QOzQF.

Everyone, regardless of #COVID19 test results, should keep wearing masks, avoiding gatherings, & staying at least 6 feet from others. People who take an antigen test that comes back negative should get retested if they have symptoms.

The new year is a time to reflect & look ahead. #ICYMI here are the top 4 most viewed Public Health Matters blog posts of 2020: http://ow.ly/qCVj50D5hho #PrepYourHealth #YearinReview
