COVID-19

The current COVID-19 Community Level in Richmond is MEDIUM.  

  • Individuals at high risk for severe illness should consider masking and other preventive measures.
  • Community levels are defined by the CDC as low, medium, or high based on hospitalization data and the number of new COVID cases in the area.  Community levels are used as a guide to help make personal decisions about which preventive measures to take against COVID.
