Breakthrough cases in vaccinated individuals are extremely rare and vaccinated individuals are less likely to pass on the illness to others if they are infected, according to the CDC. We are also working to manage risk by layering controls including vaccination, testing, face masks, distancing, sanitation, and all other steps detailed in our event procedure.
