According to the CDC, Erie County is currently listed as having a high rate of transmission with a 9.68% positivity rate.

The CDC recommends everyone in counties with substantial to high transmission rates wear masks indoors.

A mask mandate is currently in place for all K-12 schools in the state until further notice.

According to the Erie County Department of Health, wearing a mask that covers the mouth and nose has been proven to reduce the spread of infectious respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19. Studies on the effects of wearing masks have proved that there is no change in oxygen or carbon dioxide levels when people wear cloth and surgical masks while resting and exercising.
