WASHINGTON D.C. – The Centers for Disease Control has revised its guidelines on the use of masks as the number of COVID-19 cases begins to rise again.
Vaccinated Americans should now wear masks inside if they’re in places with substantial or high transmission, the CDC said.
The CDC also said Tuesday that masks should be worn in schools by all students, teachers, staff and visitors, even for those who are vaccinated. The CDC said students should return to full-time in-person learning this year with prevention strategies in place.
The CDC also has an interactive map showing the existing levels of transmission. The map indicates the level of community transmission in Kosciusko County is substantial.
