Which Counties in New York Fall into the CDC's New Mask Guidelines

On July 27, 2021, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control issued new guidelines that recommend masks be worn indoors — for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people — in areas with what they define as substantial or high COVID-19 transmission rates.

 

We've compiled which counties in New York fall into that category, according to the CDC, as well as which counties that don't. Counties with what the CDC defines as low or moderate transmission rates do not fall into the new guidelines.

This list will be updated at least once on weekdays by 6 p.m.

Latest update: Friday | Sept. 17, 2021 | 5:00 p.m
