These 49 counties in New York state should wear masks indoors, CDC now says (see list) – syracuse.com

St. Lawrence County and Chautauqua County have been contributed to the list of counties in New York state that should go back to wearing masks inside your home, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance on Covid-19. The CDC states individuals must wear masks inside in locations with “considerable” (orange locations on map above) and “high” (red) transmission of Covid-19, even if vaccinated versus the coronavirus. That consists of places with a minimum of 50 brand-new cases per 100,000 individuals in the previous week, or 90% of U.S. counties– consisting of 49 of New Yorks 62 counties now.Cattaraugus County was formerly on the list for significant transmission, but now is listed as “moderate.” St. Lawrence and Chautauqua were included as “significant” locations Monday night, while Herkimer County has actually moved from “considerable” to “high” transmission.As of Tuesday early morning (based upon the most recent CDC information available from Aug. 2-8), the list of New York state counties where vaccinated people should resume wearing masks indoors includes: High Covid transmission: Albany CountyBronx CountyDutchess CountyHamilton CountyHerkimer CountyKings County (Brooklyn) Nassau CountyNew York County (Manhattan) Orange CountyQueens CountyRensselaer CountyRichmond County (Staten Island) Rockland CountySaratoga CountySchenectady CountySuffolk CountySullivan CountyWarren CountyWestchester CountySubstantial Covid transmission: Broome CountyCayuga CountyChemung CountyChenango CountyCortland CountyDelaware CountyErie CountyFulton CountyGreene CountyJefferson CountyLewis CountyMadison CountyMonroe CountyMontgomery CountyNiagara CountyOneida CountyOnondaga CountyOrleans CountyOswego CountyOtsego CountyPutnam CountySchoharie CountySeneca CountySt. Lawrence CountyTioga CountyTompkins CountyUlster CountyWashington CountyWayne CountyGov. Andrew Cuomo has not issued any brand-new Covid guidelines, leaving decisions up to city governments. Some merchants have actually altered mask policies in recent weeks, such as needing face coverings for shop workers and/or recommending them for customers.CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky stated the brand-new recommendation is mostly due to the more transmissible Delta version, which now accounts for the large majority of Covid cases in New York state and across the country. Many brand-new infections in the U.S. continue to be amongst unvaccinated people.The CDC also suggests face coverings inside your home for teachers, staff, trainees and visitors in all schools nationwide, no matter vaccination status. Kids under 12 are still ineligible to get vaccinated, and a large number of kids under 18 are still unvaccinated.The CDCs recommendation for unvaccinated people remains the very same nationwide: Continue wearing a mask up until you get the vaccine. And masks are still advised for all individuals in crowded indoor settings, such as buses, planes, medical facilities, jails and homeless shelters.MORE ON CORONAVIRUSCoronavirus in NY: Cases, maps, charts and resourcesOnondaga County to advise temperature checks, screenings in schools this fallCovid in NY: New cases top 3K again, hospitalizations up over threefold given that July 1Pentagon to require Covid vaccine for all US military by Sept. 15Complete coronavirus coverage on syracuse.com
