From the CDC: COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area. 

Our Covid Community Level is HighWear a mask indoors in public. Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines. Get tested if you have symptoms. Additional precautions may be needed for people at high risk for severe illness
