In the United States, for any COVID-19 vaccine to receive an EUA, it must be deemed safe. The Food and Drug Administration will not issue an EUA for a vaccine if the safety data is in question. Before an EUA can be issued for a vaccine, the FDA must first determine that the known and potential benefits outweigh the known and potential risks. An EUA submission includes all safety data accumulated from phase 1, phase 2 and phase 3 studies. The number of doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will depend on the type of vaccine administered.
What does a close contact of a person with COVID-19 need to do?
Contacts are encouraged to stay home and maintain social distance from others (at least 6 feet) until 14 days after their last exposure, in case they also become ill. They should monitor themselves by checking their temperature twice daily and watching for cough or shortness of breath. To the extent possible, public health staff should check in with contacts to make sure they are self-monitoring and have not developed symptoms. Contacts who develop symptoms should promptly isolate themselves and notify public health staff. They should be promptly evaluated for infection and for the need for medical care.
ASU also is working with the Arizona Department of Health Services to analyze and produce data from the zip codes in which our campuses are located to better understand virus trends at the local level. ASU is following all CDC guidelinesrelated to higher education. ASU provides weekly updates on our COVID-19 Management Strategy, which supports virus management efforts at the state, local and university levels. If you are a Washington University employee or student whose physical presence is required on campus to perform essential services, you are required to self-screen daily for COVID-19 symptoms beforecoming to campus.
What Is A Coronavirus?
The situation is changing rapidly and we encourage all students, staff and faculty to carefully read all university communications and be prepared to follow specific guidance as it arises. We will also provide updates here when new information or guidance becomes available. Twelve months ago, most people weren’t thinking about COVID-19.
A list of legal aid resources is available at justshelter.org. To find community organizations focused on housing and eviction in your community, visit JustShelter.org. Rental assistance, including upwards of $46 billion in federally-funded aid, became available in all 50 states and the District of Columbia by the middle of 2021 at the latest. Most states were accepting rental assistance applications at the end of the Scorecard study period. The rental assistance measure on the Scorecard is counted as present if rental assistance was available to renters throughout the state during a statewide eviction moratorium.

COVID itself depletes the depleted workforce further by periodically taking out waves of health-care workers. Being vaccinated, those workers mostly incur mild or moderate symptoms, but must nonetheless stay away from medically vulnerable patients.
Are recovered persons with persistent positive test of COVID-19 infectious to others?
Persons who have tested persistently or recurrently positive for SARS-CoV-2 RNA have, in some cases, had their signs and symptoms of COVID-19 improve. When viral isolation in tissue culture has been attempted in such persons in South Korea and the United States, live virus has not been isolated. There is no evidence to date that clinically recovered persons with persistent or recurrent detection of viral RNA have transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to others.
Despite these observations, it’s not possible to conclude that all persons with persistent or recurrent detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA are no longer infectious. There is no firm evidence that the antibodies that develop in response to SARS-CoV-2 infection are protective. If these antibodies are protective, it’s not known what antibody levels are needed to protect against reinfection.
But it’s not good for your mind or your body to be on high alert all the time. Take a moment to reacquaint yourself with basic information about this virus and the disease it causes. Evidence supporting the safety of COVID vaccines for pregnant women and their babies continues to grow. One study published in MMWR looked at data from more than 40,000 pregnant women between December 2020 and July 2021.
