Four of Rhode Island Counties Now Considered Higher Risk Areas

Providence, Bristol, Kent, and Washington Counties are now considered higher risk areas according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) COVID-19 Community Levels risk assessment. CDC determines risk level using three metrics: new COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 population in the past seven days, the percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients, and total new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population in the past seven days.

If you are in a high-risk area, CDC recommends taking additional precautions, including:
• Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
• Wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public, regardless of vaccination status (including in K-12 schools and other indoor community settings).
• If you have household or social contact with someone at high risk, consider self-testing and wearing a mask when indoors with them.
• Get tested if you have symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

CDC’s full set of recommendation is available online.
