The COVID-19 transmission risk remains high across New Jersey, as hospitalizations continue to go up for a second straight week.
The whole state is shaded in red with high risk.
It means the CDC is recommending everyone wear a mask in indoor public settings.
The news comes as the number of people in hospitals with COVID-19 is more than 1,700.
The last time hospitalizations were this high was back in April.
