Forsyth County now has a medium COVID Level
Published 11:37 am Saturday, May 28, 2022
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has updated its County’s COVID-19 Community Level for Forsyth County to medium.
COVID-19 Community Levels are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. The level can be high, medium or low. Forsyth County has been low since March 10.
The CDC’s current recommendations for the county are:
• If you are at high risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions.
• Get tested if you have symptoms. Stay up to date with your vaccinations and boosters.
• 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.
