Thirty-three New York districts achieve a “high” level of community dissemination through the CDC

Two weeks ago, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only two counties in New York State — Nassau and Suffolk — were classified as having “high” transmission rates of COVID-19.

Now the number 33 is in the midst of an outbreak of cases linked to the highly contagious delta variant.

The CDC announced in late July that people in areas with “high” and “high” transmission of COVID-19 should wear masks again indoors. This means that masks must now be worn in 54 counties. Of the total 62 rural areas, only eight show a ‘moderate’ prevalence.

As of Saturday, August 14, the list of New York state counties where vaccinated people must wear masks again appears in the first image above — the counties are either in dark red (high) or orange (large).

That means counties recorded between 50 and 99.99 new cases per 100,000 residents between Friday, August 6, through Thursday, August 14.
