The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides information to help communities decide
what prevention steps to take based on the latest COVID-19 data. COVID-19 Community Levels for
every county can be found at cdc.gov. 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. The COVID-19 Community Level is currently classified as low for all GRDHD counties.
GRDHD encourages all its residents to:
Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
If you are immunocompromised or high risk for severe disease, talk to your healthcare provider
about whether you need to wear a mask or take other precautions.
Follow CDC recommendations for isolation and quarantine, including getting tested if you are
exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19.
People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to
someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.
