COVID-19 Community Spread at All-Time High for Asymptomatic
Going out for dinner with friends? Enjoy your evening but know your risk and plan accordingly. Right now, 1 in 6 people in our area have COVID-19 with no symptoms.
That means if your restaurant choice has 50 patrons, approximately eight have COVID-19. Eight people out enjoying their dinner with no idea they are contagious to those around them. This compares to 1 in 40 people during the 2021 summer surge and 1 in 16 people during the 2020 fall surge.
What does that mean from a practical perspective? Social distance, wear a mask at all times in public, and most importantly, schedule that booster vaccine or your initial vaccinations if you are unvaccinated.
