The city and county of St. Louis are again requiring residents to wear face masks starting Monday because of increasing coronavirus cases, according to KMOV, a local CBS affiliate.

Why it matters: People must wear masks inside public places and on public transportation regardless of vaccinated status, and health officials recommend that masks be worn while outside in group settings.

The big picture: St. Louis has reported 507 new cases, 545 hospitalizations and 5 deaths from the virus in the past 14 days, according to Missouri state data.

  • The Delta variant of the virus, which spreads more aggressively than other versions, has been detected in the city.

Getting outside is good for us — especially in a pandemic.

The big picture: Nature's benefits for mental health and well-being are part of the human experience and have been studied for decades. But the COVID-19 pandemic is a real-time experiment in studying exactly how green spaces can help us in difficult times.

Anxiety and depression symptoms vary by age and race

Data: CDC; Note: Asian, Black and white respondents identified as non-Hispanic and are of a single race; Chart: Jacque Schrag/Axios

Young adults and people of color are disproportionately reporting symptoms of anxiety or depression, according to CDC data.

By the numbers: The portion of U.S. adults reporting these symptoms has hovered around 30% since this spring — a drop from the more than 40% of adults reporting symptoms last winter.

  • In 2019, only 11% of adults reported symptoms of anxiety or depression, per the CDC.
