CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago could soon be issuing a mask advisory, as cases of COVID and the flu continue to surge.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot said right now, Chicago is at what the CDC defines as "medium level" of COVID-19 transmission. She said the city will likely reach the "high level" within the next two weeks.
When that happens, she will issue an advisory recommending everyone wear a mask indoor public spaces.
Lightfoot, who just tested positive for COVID-19 last week, said wearing masks and getting your updated booster shots could be a matter of life or death for some Chicagoans.
If you don’t want to brave the cold, the city is offering to bring the COVID-19 vaccine to your home, for free. To make an appointment, visit Chicago.gov/athome or call 311.
