Health Department says risk is high level

The Iowa County Health Department has announced the current conditions with the highly infectious Delta variant.
Following is the current statement from the Health Department.
"Iowa County, according to the CDC COVID-19 Data Tracker at has increased from substantial to high risk level of community transmission for COVID-19. The recommendation that everyone, including fully vaccinated people, wear a mask when in indoor public spaces regardless of vaccination status, remains and is very important. Masks are recommended for people age two and older.
Key points from the CDC's recommendations:
■ Everyone, including fully vaccinated people, should wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission.
■ Everyone, including fully vaccinated people, may choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission, particularly if they are immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease from COVID-19, or if they have someone in their household who is immunocompromised, at increased risk of severe disease or not fully vaccinated.
■ Fully vaccinated people who have a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should be tested 3-5 days after exposure, and should wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result.
■ CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to schools, regardless of vaccination status."
