Dane County’s COVID-19 Community Level is currently “Medium”.
How this is determined: This level is determined by the CDC, and can be low, medium, or high. Levels are calculated by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area.
What this means for our county: The levels are for setting community level actions. At this level, CDC recommends a number of strategies for our county, including encouraging people to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and getting tested if they have symptoms.
What this means for you: The levels are for setting community level actions but may help inform the personal choices you make. See our Recommendations and Guidance page for additional considerations. At the medium community level, besides staying up to date on vaccines, CDC states:
If you are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease, talk to your health care provider about whether you should wear a mask in public.
If you live with someone at high risk, or come in contact with people who are high risk, consider wearing a mask while indoors with them or using a home test before coming in contact with them.
If you have symptoms or were exposed, be sure to get tested.
