As of today, Friday, Aug. 12, 2022, Mecklenburg County has moved from CDC COVID-19 Community Level High/Orange down to COVID 19 Community Level Medium/Yellow.
The COVID-19 Community Level tool helps people decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest COVID-19 data in their community. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. The change from high to medium in the County reflects a decrease in positive cases and hospital admission rates.
"This is a positive sign for the community, but the situation can change quickly,” said Dr. Raynard Washington, director, Mecklenburg County Public Health. “I urge everyone to continue to safeguard yourselves and your loved ones.”
