No. COVID-19 cases are down sharply, but the end of the emergency declarations does not mean the virus is no longer a threat. The virus remains a leading cause of death in the United States. 

CDC continues to advise that everyone stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations, use at-home rapid antigen tests if exposed or symptomatic, stay home if sick, and wear a high-quality mask when appropriate. These precautions are the best ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from severe illness. Visit CDC’s website, along with your state and local health departments’ websites, for local statistics and information about recommended precautions.
