The tracker is updated daily at 8 p.m. and searchable down to the county level.

WASHINGTON — The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises all Americans, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask when indoors in areas where there is a substantial or high level of COVID-19 community transmissions. 

The CDC has released an interactive map that helps track and display levels of transmission for COVID-19. The tracker is updated daily at 8 p.m. and searchable down to the county level.

Each county is categorized by color:

  • Blue for low transmission (0-9.99 cases per 100,000 persons in the past 7 days)
  • Yellow for moderate transmission (10-49.99 cases per 100,000 persons in the past 7 days)
  • Orange for substantial transmission (50-99.99 cases per 100,000 persons in the past 7 days)
  • Red for high transmission (Over 100 cases per 100,000 persons in the past 7 days)

The CDC advises people in red or orange counties to wear masks in public areas.
