Know Your COVID-19 Community Level
The CDC's new COVID-19 Community Levels is a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data for each area. 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. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area.
 
We are updating the COVID-19 community levels each week for our six counties: Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens and Whitfield. Just click on our COVID-19 Updates for North Georgians page at https://nghd.org/covid-19-central each week to see your county's level.
 
Then look there for this COVID-19 Community Level tool to see what prevention steps you should take to avoid COVID-19 exposure based on the COVID-19 level for your community.
