High Level of COVID-19 in Metro Detroit; indoor masking recommended

DETROIT – As COVID-19 cases in Michigan rise again, the CDC once again recommends that everyone in Metro Detroit wear masks indoors and take necessary precautions.

A newly released CDC map shows Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Livingston and St. Clair counties with high levels of community transmission of the virus, meaning there is a higher risk of contracting it.

That is why schools are also being called upon to mask themselves.

On Wednesday, the state reported 27,705 new cases over seven days, averaging 3,900 cases per day. That’s well above last week’s average of 2,700 cases per day.

Seventy-six deaths are also reported over that same seven-day period.

That number may not reflect the results of the home test if those cases are not reported to the state.
