Moving forward after positive case

It may not be the last case, but Door County health officials are moving forward after announcing the first positive test of a person with COVID-19 Monday evening. Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise and Door County Public Health Officer Sue Powers shared broad details about the case during their weekly Facebook Live chat. They said the person has been isolated since being tested and is currently hospitalized in Green Bay.  Powers said now it is a matter of backtracking from when they became symptomatic to determine where they have been and who else may have been exposed.

Heise credited residents with practicing safe social distancing and good hygiene for curtailing the spread of COVID-19 in Door County up until this point. As of March 30th, 102 people have been tested for COVID-19 with 43 coming back negative and over 60 still pending.
