It looks like a yellow jacket. The pics of the murder hornet are more of a orange in color and huge mandibles, one and a half inches or longer in length. If your unsure check with your local college extension service.

See pic here.

Not the murder hornet. Some species of wasps that look like yellow jackets have been established in recent times in N.A. the pic is not the best for id. But good enough not to be your concern.
