WEDNESDAY UPDATES: All but three Missouri counties in ‘substantial’ or ‘high’ transmission levels of COVID-19
The CDC's weekly State Profile Report shows all but three Missouri counties are in "high" or "substantial" levels of COVID-19 transmission.
The new report was released the same day the agency recommended everyone wear masks indoors in areas classified as those transmission levels.Missouri State Profile Report Download
Included at the highest level of transmission, shown as red in the map below, are all counties in Mid-Missouri.
Scotland County is the only Missouri county that remains at the "low" level of COVID-19 transmission, while just Bollinger and Pemiscot counties are the only ones classified as "moderate" transmission.
The high transmission of COVID-19 across the Show-Me State is being blamed, in part, on the delta variant.
Updated CDC data shows the delta variant accounts for 90.3% of new cases in Missouri. This is up from slightly under 90% last week.
