Here’s where COVID levels are starting to spike again, according to the CDC

COVID-19 cases are once again topping 100,000 per day in the U.S., and that number could be significantly higher as the number of unreported cases grows, thanks to at-home testing. But not all areas are equal when it comes to risk levels.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has ranked the risk level by county through the U.S.—and, as of Tuesday, 241 counties are ranked as having high COVID-19 levels, which is determined by whichever is higher: either new hospital admissions of people with the virus, or the percentage of inpatient beds in use by COVID-19 patients.

Most of the country is still ranked low, with 2,247 counties attaining that designation. Another 736 have medium COVID levels, says the CDC.

The locations with high levels are scattered in clusters around the country, but the biggest concentration is along Florida’s east coast and central region. Some 20 counties in the state have the highest CDC ranking.

Major cities are also in the red zone, including New York City (and much of New Jersey), the Bay Area and central California, New Orleans, Detroit, and Chicago.

Other hotspots, though, lie outside major population centers. The eastern part of Montana is a high COVID-level zone. So is Rio Blanco County, Colo., northwest of Vail. Minnesota, along the Canadian border and Lake Superior, is squarely in the red. So is the area around Winston-Salem, N.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The full county-by-county map can be found on the CDC site.

The COVID-19 community levels were calculated on June 2, the CDC notes. The surge comes as new strains of the Omicron variant are proving more transmissible than even “stealth Omicron.”

At present, there are more than 15,000 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in the U.S., the organization says.
