The Ledge Light Health District (LLHD) has notified the Town of Lyme that the U.S. Centers for Disease Prevention & Control (CDC) has designated the risk of COVID transmission in New London County as being “substantial.”

The LLHD notification included this statement:

“In areas with substantial transmission, CDC recommends that everyone (including fully vaccinated individuals) wear a mask in public indoor settings to help prevent spread of the Delta variant and to protect others. This is important because new data show that fully vaccinated people who are infected with the Delta variant might be infectious and might potentially spread the virus to others.”
