City of Chicago's COVID-19

Risk is at: Medium

https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/covid-19/home/community-transmission-and-risk.html

Please be advised that, following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and based on Chicago’s current local COVID-19 data, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) now recommends that everyone over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks in public indoor settings. Masking remains optional in outdoor settings, where the risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower, though masks are recommended for unvaccinated individuals in crowded outdoor settings.

COVID-19 Community Levels have been developed by the CDC to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest local COVID-19 data. Levels are determined each week for each county in the U.S. A county’s risk level can be low, medium, or high based on a combination of three metrics: the number of new local COVID-19 cases; the number of new local COVID-19 hospital admissions; and the proportion of local hospital beds occupied by patients with COVID. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area.

To our volunteers,

THANK YOU!!!

You are appreciated!
