Covid-19 (Coronavirus) 

Widespread vaccination is the most important pathway to ending the Covid-19 pandemic. Everyone age 12 and older is eligible to get a Covid-19 vaccine. Learn where to get a Covid-19 vaccine on the City of Cambridge’s website.

After you have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, you can resume many activities. However, you should keep taking certain precautions. If you are fully vaccinated, masks are optional. If wearing a mask makes you feel more comfortable, wear one!  

How to Protect Yourself and Others

If you haven't been vaccinated yet, here are some important ways to slow the spread of Covid-19:
  • Get a Covid-19 vaccine as soon as you can. For questions, visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document on the vaccine. 
  • Wear a mask when you are around people not in your household. 
  • Stay 6 feet apart from others who are not in your household.
  • Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
