Author: Share:

County infection rate has increased 120% over 14 days, according to the NY Times

Steuben’s COVID Community Level has been moved to High. It is strongly encouraged that when the community level is high, everyone:

1. wear a mask indoors in public

2. stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters

3. get tested if you have symptoms, after exposure and after travel

These prevention steps apply to everyone, regardless of vaccine status or level risk for severe illness. Those who are at higher risk may consider additional precautions.

See https://www.cdc.gov/…/2019…/your-health/free-masks.html for where free masks can be found in your community.
