For the first time since the winter, Johnson County is once again at “high” risk of community levels for COVID-19, according to the CDC.

Why it matters: Johnson County entered the medium-risk level in early July, and by July 14 had been upped to the high-risk level, per the county-by-county CDC’s COVID-19 tracker.
