New York City raises its COVID alert level to medium to reflect rising case numbers


New York City has moved its COVID-19 risk level to medium, or yellow, from green, according to the city’s health department website, signaling that cases are rising at an undesirably fast pace. The city is currently seeing nearly 2,500 new cases a day, which is up from about 600 in early March. The number may be even higher as many people are now testing at home and the data is not all being collected. It’s unclear for now whether Mayor Eric Adams will reintroduce certain public safety measures such as face masks in indoor settings. The health department is recommending that New Yorkers keep up vaccines and boosters, wear a face mask in indoor settings and get tested if they are unwell. “If NYC’s Alert Level is raised to High, the City will consider requiring face masks in all public indoor settings,” said the health department.
