WEST LEBANON — COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations are on the rise.

Grafton County now has “high” community levels of COVID-19, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The other three Upper Valley counties, New Hampshire’s Sullivan County and Vermont’s Orange and Windsor counties, now sit at “medium.”

That’s up from last week, when Grafton County had “medium” levels and the other three counties had “low” levels. The CDC updates its county community levels weekly on Thursdays.

At “high” levels the CDC recommends that people wear masks in indoor public places, regardless of their vaccination status or personal level of risk.

When levels of COVID-19 in a community are at “medium,” the CDC recommends that people at high risk of serious illness consult their health care provider about whether to wear a mask in public.
