Frederick County Metrics

The CDC is tracking and reporting two metrics that are used to inform the response to COVID-19 in communities.

Community Transmission Rate

HIGHCommunity Transmission Rate
Frederick County
The Community Transmission Rate is an indicator of how likely the virus is to be transmitted and works best during a surge or outbreak. However, it does not provide information on the strain on hospitals and healthcare systems.

COVID-19 Community Levels

MEDIUMCommunity Level
Frederick County
The Community Level is an indicator of hospitalizations and availability of hospital beds and is most useful when the number of new cases is low. Below is the CDC's County Check reporting widget that will display the Community Level for any county you select.

At our current level, people should:

  • Consider wearing a mask indoors in public places. CDC recommends that people who are at high risk of complications from COVID talk to their healthcare provider about wearing a mask or taking other precautions.
  • Get vaccinated/boosted
  • Get tested if you have symptoms

Hospitals, nursing homes, and healthcare settings are instructed to follow CDC's COVID-19 Community Transmission Level, which is currently high for Frederick County.

Masks should still be worn by people with symptoms of COVID-19, a positive COVID-19 test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19. Additionally, people may still choose to wear a mask at any time based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk.

People who are immunocompromised may want to talk with their healthcare provider about their level of risk, which metric is best for them to follow, and what steps they should take to protect themselves.
