WEST LEBANON — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to say that the Upper Valley’s four counties have low levels of COVID-19, according to data updated on Thursday.

Due to low numbers of COVID-19 cases and related hospitalizations, the CDC recommends that people in Vermont’s Windsor and Orange counties and New Hampshire’s Grafton and Sullivan counties wear a mask based on their personal preferences, informed by their personal risk levels.

The CDC recommends that everyone wear a mask indoors when cases and hospitalizations in a county are high.

Most of the Twin States, and the rest of the country, had low levels of COVID-19 as of Thursday, but Vermont’s Chittenden, Addison, Washington and Orleans counties had medium levels.

In places with medium levels of COVID-19, the CDC recommends that people who are immunocompromised or at risk of severe illness should they get COVID-19 consult their health care provider about whether or not to wear a mask. With medium levels, the CDC also suggests that those who live with or otherwise interact with people at high risk for severe illness consider testing themselves and wearing a mask when indoors with the person at risk.

The CDC updates the community level data weekly on Thursdays. People can search for their county’s COVID-19 level online at:
