CDC: high level of COVID-19 in the Detroit metro; interior masking recommended

DETROIT – As COVID-19 cases surge in Michigan, the CDC is again recommending everyone in Metro Detroit to mask up indoors and take necessary precautions.

A recently released CDC map shows Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Livingston and St. Clair counties with a high level of community transmission of the virus, meaning there is a greater risk of catching it.

For this reason, schools are also asked to mask themselves.

On Wednesday, the state reported 27,705 new cases over seven days, an average of 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 during that same seven-day period.
