  • According to The CDC Delaware County is currently at substantial level of community transmission.  Substantial level of community transmission is defined as 8-9.99% positivity rate in last 7 days.  The CDC and Delaware County Public Health recommend that everyone, even those who are fully vaccinated, wear a mask in indoor public locations, if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission, to maximize protection from all variants including Delta and prevent possibly spreading it to others.   https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view

    Vaccines help protect people from getting COVID-19 or from getting severely ill from it. Unvaccinated people should get vaccinated and continue masking. CDC also recommends that fully vaccinated people wear masks in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. With the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant rapidly spreading throughout the country, this is more urgent than ever.

    The highest spread of cases and severe outcomes is happening in places with low vaccination rates.  47.2% of Delaware County’s population is fully vaccinated.

    If you have not been vaccinated yet, please get vaccinated. You can find clinic sites at:
