Preparation needed as coronavirus concerns grow

The risk of contracting the coronavirus in the area continues to be low and two Door County entities are working together to keep it that way. It comes after the Wisconsin Department of Health confirmed the state’s second and third cases of the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, in Pierce and Dane Counties. In a joint Facebook Live question/answer session Monday night, Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise and Door County Public Health Manager Sue Powers spoke about COVID-19 and what to do to be prepared. Powers is encouraging individuals and businesses to think about their preparedness measures.

Heise says COVID-19 concerns are higher in bigger cities, but that does not mean it could not make its way to Door County.

Door County Medical Center announced last week it had two people tested for COVID-19 after they became sick upon their arrival from infected places. Both tests came back negative. You can watch the full question/answer session with Powers and Heise below.
