Approximately one week after Door County confirmed its first COVID-19 case, Kewaunee County is now doing the same.
According to a release from Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard, the 80-year old patient was hospitalized over the weekend. It is the first confirmed case for Kewaunee County after 51 of its 62 residents tested negative for the virus with 10 tests still pending. Kewaunee County was one of the final fourteen counties in the state without a positive test until Sunday's announcement.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services also updated the statewide total of positive COVID-19 cases to over 2,240, including four in Door County. That is two more positive tests for Door County since last Friday.
