NYC raises COVID alert level to high, urging mask wearing

New York City increased its COVID-19 alert level on Tuesday from medium to high after authorities hinted yesterday they could make such a move.

The high alert level strongly advises all New Yorkers should wear protective masks in all indoor venues as well as in crowded outdoor areas.

The decision comes as the number of daily registered cases in the city stood above 10,000 in recent weeks, reaching the highest level since the city's worst outbreak in January.
