HARTFORD, Conn. — The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has listed seven Connecticut counties with a high level of COVID-19 activity.
The CDC said that the state is experiencing high levels of COVID-19 and that residents are encouraged to take steps to protect themselves and those around them from infection.
The Community Department of Public health recommends that all residents consider wearing a mask in public indoor spaces.
The seven counties that are being listed in the High/Orange category are Fairfield, Hartford, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, Tolland, and Windham Counties.
Only New London County is listed in the Medium/Yellow category, but officials still recommend masking in public indoor spaces for those residents.
The state Department of Public Health says, "To help protect themselves, their families, and our most vulnerable residents and to preserve capacity in our healthcare system, people are also advised to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and get tested if they have symptoms."
