The image on the top is the current CDC risk map. The one below is their old methodology. Both of them are available to view with current data. You can select the drop-down to get the first map (or zoom in) by selecting “COVID-19 Community Levels.” Use “Community Transmission” to get the old version. I’ll update this occasionally with the date that the images were pulled in the title.
What gives CDC? It really looks like you have sold out to business and economic interests. It’s going to take decades to make your agency trustworthy again. Your old adage had been “Be First, Be Right, Be Credible.” Was there so much belt tightening that it’s just “Be First” now?
If you want to protect yourself and those around you, get vaccinated (or boosted), improve ventilation, and wear a N-95 or comparable respirator.
