HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Just ahead of the 4th of July weekend, most counties in north Alabama are labeled as “High Risk” or “Very High Risk,” according to Alabama Department of Public Health.

The ADPH updates the state’s COVID-19 risk indicator dashboard every Thursday, and on July 1st, Lauderdale, Limestone, Madison and DeKalb counties were all labeled as “Very High Risk.” Limestone County currently has one of the highest vaccine hesitancy rates in the state.

Very high risk means cases are staying the same or increasing.
