COVID-19: Guidance for Safer Communities

On August 11, 2022, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced it's streamlining its COVID-19 guidance to help people better understand their risk, how to protect themselves and others, what actions to take if exposed to COVID-19, and what actions to take if they are sick or test positive for the virus. DHS is currently reviewing CDC updates and will update our guidance accordingly.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help you make decisions to minimize the impact COVID-19 has on our health care systems, while also protecting those who are most at risk of severe illness. Find additional guidance and resources for keeping your community safe.
