​COVID-19 Level at High in Mecklenburg County

The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Level in Mecklenburg County has shifted to the HIGH level. This designation is a result of rising COVID-19 hospital admissions, the number of hospital patients with COVID-19 and new COVID-19 cases. This is a change from the Medium level of recent weeks.

As the winter season moves forward and we are all spending more time indoors, consider wearing a mask in public indoor spaces and stay home if you are not feeling well.
