Do I need to wear a mask if I am vaccinated?

No, given current CDC guidelines you are no longer required to wear a mask if you are fully vaccinated. If you are unvaccinated you are required to wear a mask if you are unable to maintain 6 ft of social distance.

No! This campaign is just one part of a much larger strategy based on the Strategic Prevention Framework.

Can we trust the numbers in the Sedro-Woolley Parents RISE survey?

Every study has limitations – and ours is no exception!  However, our numbers are very consistent with what we see reported by youth in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey, trends in underage drinking, and a national study by the American Medical Association of parents of teens (10).  By looking at both these other studies and surveys, we feel confident that the numbers in our survey
