Door County health officials cautiously optimistic

Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise and Door County Public Health Manager Sue Powers like what they are seeing when it comes to the area's COVID-19 trends. Hosting their sixth Facebook Live session on Monday night, Powers announced that seven of the nine patients who had COVID-19 have since recovered. Heise says they have seen fewer calls to their COVID-19 hotline, but they have tested a similar number of people as testing becomes more available. While he understands people being anxious about getting back to a new normal, Heise emphasized the importance of still being patient to prevent a possible resurgence.

Powers and Heise both acknowledged the frustrations of tracking the virus, saying they are still learning as they go, especially when it comes to the impact COVID-19 has on specific individuals.
