COVID-19 cases decreased slightly across the U.S. during the past week, with about 117,500 known cases recorded per day. There was also a decrease of cases in Virginia, according to the weekly update from Dr. Richard Williams, medical director of the Three Rivers Health District, with around 2,800 cases per day statewide.
In the Three Rivers District, cases were down, as well, with around 33 cases per day recorded. By criteria established by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the community level of Covid ran the gamut in the local area, with Mathews at low level, Gloucester at medium level, and Middlesex at high level. Other localities in the district were either medium or high.
Those who live in areas with high levels of the virus are advised to wear a mask in public indoor spaces, including public transportation, stay up to date with vaccines, and get tested if they have symptoms, said Williams, adding that those at high risk should consider taking additional precautions.
