COVID-19 Community Levels is a new tool to help people decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. CDC recommends taking precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area. Immunocompromised people may need to layer prevention strategies (vaccination, masking, physical distancing) to protect themselves against COVID-19 and should speak with a healthcare provider for more information.
If you travel, you should still take steps to protect yourself and others. The CDC recommends that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings. Transportation systems and hubs retain the right to make customers wear masks. Check the mask policies of the transportation systems you are using and any transportation hubs you may pass through during your travel.
You should still watch out for symptoms of COVID-19, especially if you’ve been around someone who is sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested and stay home and away from others. Check the CDC’s latest quarantine and isolation guidelines for specific details.
