ROCKFORD (WREX) -- The CDC has placed the following counties under "High COVID-19 Community Level" status:

  • Winnebago
  • Stephenson 
  • Boone
  • Ogle
  • Lee
  • Rock County - WI

The Community Level is considered "high" because the levels of COVID-19 hospitalizations, cases, and patients in hospital beds are a strain for the local health system. 

CDC recommends that residents in these counties wear a mask when indoors in public, stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, and get tested if you feel any symptoms.
