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.
