The New York City government has raised the Covid alert level to ‘high’. What does it mean?
According to the rating, there is a considerable pressure on the health care system in the city as a result of a high COVID-19 community spread.
It is recommended that New Yorkers wear a face mask when in public indoor settings and when in crowded outdoor settings, and that they avoid activities that are more dangerous.
