Health officials call for more precautions

While some social distancing practices have been going well, two Door County health officials are calling for residents to take more measures to protect themselves from COVID-19 exposure. Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise and Door County Public Health Officer Sue Powers provided their fourth COVID-19 update on Facebook Monday night after the area’s fifth, sixth, and seventh confirmed cases were announced. Powers called on residents to stay in quarantine after being tested or being possibly exposed to the virus and to avoid even small gatherings with friends and family. Heise urged them to make sure they wash their hands, clean surfaces, and wear a mask when in public. He says that is because you could be a carrier even if you are asymptomatic.

Powers says the county is continuing its call for second-home owners to stay at their primary residence and discourages any kind of non-essential travel until after the COVID-19 outbreak is under control. You can watch the full video with Powers and Heise, which also includes a conversation about testing, below.
