Local health departments react to coronavirus

Door and Kewaunee County health officials are being updated on the spread of the coronavirus.  That virus has caused 17 deaths in Wuhan China, where it was detected, and one case has been diagnosed in Washington State in a  person who recently traveled to China.  There's no sign that the virus has spread to Wisconsin. Local health care providers, however, are receiving regular advisories on what researchers are learning about the virus.  Susan Powers, Door County Public Health Officer, says the latest information reminds doctors, clinics and hospitals to follow protocols for any infectious disease.


Health care providers are also being requested to require patients with possible respiratory ailments to wear masks while in waiting rooms and to take them to separate examination rooms.
