Mom’s three COVID-19 rules just got a fourth

  • MASK: Just because the vaccine’s here doesn’t mean we take our masks off just yet. Keep ‘em on when you’re outside your pod!
  • DISTANCE: We know you’re ready to hug a friend, but we’re not there yet. Keep on social distancing—six feet apart or more.
  • HAND WASH: Even if the vaccine’s gone in your arm, you still need to wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water.
  • VACCINE: COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and the rollout is ramping up every day here in Gwinnett. Start making your vaccine plan today — Gwinnett Moms thank you!


Test Yourself. Not Your Mother's Patience.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone who tested positive, schedule a test ASAP. Because if you don't, you can bet your mother will.
Free drive-through testing is available from our local health department. Visit the Gwinnett, Newton, Rockdale County Health Departments webpage to make an appointment.
You should also take care of your mental health during this time. The outbreak of COVID-19 may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. See more information from the CDC about managing stress and anxiety during the pandemic.
Parents, family members, and other trusted adults can play an important role in helping children make sense of what they hear in a way that is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear. The CDC has created guidance to help adults have conversations with children about COVID-19 and ways they can avoid getting and spreading the disease.

Stay in the Know. And Call Your Mother.
While there's no scientific evidence that calling your mom prevents the spread of COVID-19, it can't hurt.
You can find the latest information about COVID-19 from trusted, mom-approved resources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Georgia Department of Public Health, and GNR Health. For more information about COVID-19, see these resources :
