The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have listed all counties in the Lord Fairfax Health District (LFHD) as a low COVID-19 transmission rate area.

Under the new guidelines by the CDC of Low, Medium or High transmission rates.

Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah and Warren Counties are all listed as low in transmission of COVID-19.

Under the new CDC guidelines this means healthy people who are up to date on vaccinations do not have to wear masks.

Of course anyone is welcome to continue to use a mask if they choose especially those with compromised immune systems.

Masks are also still required on public transportation as well in some public buildings.

The rating of Low for the LFHD comes as new cases of COVID-19 have dropped by 20 percent in recent weeks.

Also the 72 percent of Virginians currently vaccinated has helped to keep the LFHD at its current Low transmission rate.
