The CDC recommends the following for people in a “high” community level county:
- Wear a mask indoors in public regardless of vaccination status;
- Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines;
- Get tested if you have symptoms.
People who are immunocompromised should talk to their doctor about additional health precautions they can take, as well as treatment options available to them if they test positive for coronavirus.
The CDC uses the number of new coronavirus cases per 100,000 people in the past week, new COVID hospital admissions and the percent of staffed inpatient hospital beds occupied by coronavirus patients to determine COVID community levels.
