Preventing Spread of COVID-19
- The Delta variant continues to spread in Linn County, accounting for 81.4% of positive tests in July 2021. This is an increase from 9.1% of positive tests in June 2021. For more information on variants in Linn County, visit Linn County’s metrics dashboard. While the Delta variant is highly contagious, COVID-19 vaccines are still very effective at preventing severe disease and hospitalization.
- In areas with substantial and high transmission, CDC recommends that everyone (including fully vaccinated individuals) wear a mask in public indoor settings to help prevent spread of Delta and to keep your family safe. Linn County is in a high transmission or "red" area as defined by the CDC.
- In addition to vaccination, Linn County Public Health continues to recommend the use of other mitigation approaches including staying home when you're sick, washing your hands, and wearing masks and social distancing as a layered approach to make virus spread less likely.
