WEST LEBANON — The level of COVID-19 in all four counties of the Upper Valley is now below the threshold at which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends indoor masking for everyone.

As of Thursday, the level of COVID-19 in Orange County has dropped to “low” from “medium” the prior week. COVID-19 levels in Windsor, Grafton and Sullivan counties are “medium,” which marks a dip for the two New Hampshire counties from the week before.

When levels of COVID-19 in the community are high, the CDC recommends that people wear masks indoors in public spaces, regardless of their level of personal risk or vaccination status.

When COVID-19 levels are “medium,” the CDC recommends that people at high risk of severe illness should they contract COVID-19 talk with their health care provider about whether or not to wear a mask.
