COVID Community Level Map Information

If the COVID-19 Community Level where you live is:

• Low: Wear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.

• Medium: If you are at risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about wearing masks indoors in public. If you live with or will gather with someone at risk for severe illness, wear a mask when indoors with them.

• High: If you are 2 or older, wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public, regardless of vaccination status or individual risk (including in K-12 schools and other community settings).

People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask regardless of community level but we recommend staying home if you’re sick and take a make-up class in the future.
