CDC: Hartford & New London Counties Wear Masks Indoors. This is regardless of vaccination status due to high covid community transmission rates.
Substantial community transmission is classified by the CDC as 50-99 cumulative cases per 100,000 people in the past seven days. In both counties, there’s a positivity rate greater than eight percent.
That means people in the two communities should wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
In Hartford, at least 66 percent of the population has had at least one dose of the vaccine. In New London County, over 68 percent of people have had at least one shot of the vaccine.
The CDC COVID Data Tracker shows the other state counties listed under “moderate” transmission, which is classified as 10-49 cumulative cases per 100,000 people in the past seven days.
