The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its recommended indicators for monitoring the impact of COVID-19 on communities, changing from community transmission to COVID-19 Community Levels – Low, Medium, or High.

Dodge County is now considered to be at a “low” COVID-19 community level. Community levels will replace community transmission level, and this change will be reflected on the Dodge County COVID-19 snapshot, Human Services and Health Department Director Becky Bell wrote in a March 1 press release. As a community, masks are not recommended in low or medium COVID-19 community levels.
