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.
