    After the CDC’s mask guideline map for California was challenged, the revision issued Thursday was substantially different, with the state’s most populous counties designated “low risk.” Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had issued maps showing each U.S. county’s “community risk level,” which the agency uses in advising where masks should be worn inside. A few days later, the news organization CalMatters reported that the CDC data appeared “to be outdated by more than a month,” and that many of the California counties had been improperly designated high risk. The CDC’s new map has reclassified many counties, including moving Los Angeles and San Diego from high risk to low risk. In the Bay Area, Santa Clara County moved from medium to low risk; Alameda was downgraded from low to medium. Counties are rated low (green), medium (yellow) or high (orange) risk, based on rates of new cases and hospitalizations for COVID-19 and on hospital capacity. High: Masks recommended for everyone in indoor public places. Medium: Masks recommended for those at high risk for...
    DETROIT (AP) — Face masks will be optional for U.S. union auto workers, as long as their factories are in counties that are not at high risk for the novel coronavirus. A task force of officials from Ford, General Motors, Stellantis and the United Auto Workers union decided to drop a mask requirement at a meeting on Thursday.

    California officials are pushing back on a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that indicates that half of California’s 58 counties are still “high risk” for coronavirus, saying the number is 19 and the CDC was using old data. The data have implications for whether counties are allowed to join the state’s overall policy dropping indoor mask mandates. CalMatters.org reported Wednesday: Federal health officials who reported that nearly half of Californians live in “high-risk” counties for COVID-19 were relying on old data, and only a small number of counties now fall into that category, according to local officials. At stake is whether counties considered high risk should keep indoor masking requirements under new guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or follow the state’s lead in removing nearly all mask requirements. … The federal agency on Friday released a map showing that more than half of California’s 58 counties, and 49% of its residents, fell into the high-risk category using … three metrics.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Everyone in all but six Maryland counties can put their masks away, if they want to, according to new COVID-19 metrics by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC’s “Covid-19 community level” metrics, announced Friday, are now based on three pieces of data in a community: new Covid-19 hospitalizations, hospital capacity and new Covid-19 cases. READ MORE: Human Remains Found In White MarshThose in parts of the country deemed to have “low” levels of the disease — currently about 29.5% of the population — no longer need to wear masks indoors, according to the CDC’s new framework. Residents of counties at “medium” risk — around 42.2% of the country’s population – should wear masks if they are at heightened risk of severe disease, like those who have compromised immune systems. Washington, Worcester, Wicomico, Somerset and Garrett counties are at medium risk. People in counties at a “high” level — around 28.2% of Americans — should still wear a mask indoors. Allegany County is the only Maryland county with a high COVID-19 community level. In...
    ATLANTA (AP) — Most Americans live in places where healthy people, including students in schools, can safely take a break from wearing masks under new U.S. guidelines released Friday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention outlined the new set of measures for communities where COVID-19 is easing its grip, with less of a focus on positive test results and more on what’s happening at hospitals. READ MORE: Former Peterson Juror Richelle Nice Did Not Consider Herself 'A Crime Victim'The new system greatly changes the look of the CDC’s risk map and puts more than 70% of the U.S. population in counties where the coronavirus is posing a low or medium threat to hospitals. Those are the people who can stop wearing masks, the agency said. The agency is still advising people, including schoolchildren, to wear masks where the risk of COVID-19 is high. That’s the situation in about 37% of U.S. counties, where about 28% of Americans live. The new recommendations do not change the requirement to wear masks on public transportation and indoors in airports, train stations and...
