New York City has raised its COVID-19 risk level to medium as cases continue a steady rise across the U.S., led by northeastern states. Officially, New York City is recording about 2,500 new cases a day, but those numbers are likely a significant undercount due to the growth of at-home testing. On Monday, Mayor Eric Adams, who recently recovered from COVID-19, said he wasn’t prepared to close down the city again but would consider reimposing public health measures like mask mandates and requiring proof of vaccination at some venues.
