St. Clair County is currently at a "low" COVID-19 community level (7/22/2022).  

In communities like ours with a LOW COVID-19 Community Level, the CDC recommends:

  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters
  • Get tested if you have symptoms
  • Wear a mask if you have symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19
  • Wear a mask on public transportation
  • If you are immunocompromised or high risk for severe disease
    • Have a plan for rapid testing if needed (e.g. having home tests or access to testing)
    • Talk to your healthcare provider about whether you are a candidate for treatments like oral antivirals, PrEP, and monoclonal antibodies

 

At all Community Levels, people can wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.

CDC Community Level: With at-home testing, case counts have become a less reliable metric to determine the threat level of COVID-19 in a community. The CDC Community Level takes hospitalizations and hospital capacity into account, and outlines recommendations for additional precautions as Community Level rises—especially for those who are at high risk or have close friends or family members at high risk for severe COVID-19.
