Masks are now recommended in most of Minnesota's 87 counties as the more contagious delta variant continues to spread.

Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows more than 70 of Minnesota's counties have substantial or high rates of community transmission and masks are recommended for everyone in indoor public spaces, vaccinated or not. The CDC uses the rate of new cases and positive tests over the past week to make its recommendations.

There are just five counties where community transmission is considered low and 11 where it is considered moderate. None is in the Twin Cities metro area.
