In areas of “substantial” or “high” levels of community transmission of COVID-19, the CDC recommends everyone, regardless of vaccination status, consider wearing a mask in public indoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated and to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others.
Given the virus transmission level in Madison County is at a “substantial” level, as noted by the CDC, the Madison County Board of Health and Health Department strongly encourages the practice of wearing a mask in public indoor settings.
MCDOH stands ready to respond and actively monitors the COVID-19 situation in our communities and our region, keeping the best interest for our resident’s health and safety at the forefront.
The Madison County Health Department and Board of Health also, recommend that people who are not yet vaccinated should get the COVID-19 vaccine. Over 73% of Madison County residents over 18-years-old have received at least one dose of the vaccine. The good news is that if you are fully vaccinated, you are protected against severe COVID-19, hospitalization, and death.
