All Delaware counties are in the geen zone when it comes to Covid-19 risk.
That’s according to the new online tool from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The tool lists Covid risk in all U.S. counties.
Delaware Gov. John Carney earlier ended indoor mask requirements in public places as well as a nearly two-year-long state of emergency.
Initially, New Castle was the only low-risk county in Delaware, with Kent and Sussex counties in the moderate range.
A map from the CDC shows the vast majority of the nation’s land mass is now in the green zone.
Exceptons include an area of Appalachia, northern Main and other scattered areas that typically have low vaccination rates.
Residents of high risk areas are advised to wear masks indoors. Counties in the green category have a low risk of contracting the virus indoors.
States have dropped indoor masking requirements with the excpetion being health care facilities.
Masks are also required for airline and train passengers.
