Large gatherings, schools complicate COVID picture

Expect more questions than answers when it comes to when large gatherings can take place again and what school will look like in the fall. Recommended social distancing guidelines have forced many attractions like The Hill Raceway to take the summer off in the interest of safety. There is concern that recent protests across the country could result in a spike of COVID-19 cases. Door County Public Health Manager Sue Powers said in her joint Facebook Live appearance with Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise that there are many factors to consider, especially as what we know about the virus changes.

As for school in the fall, Powers said the department is working with the county’s five districts on plans to reopen.

The Wisconsin Public Health Department is expected to release guidelines for schools to reopen on June 22nd.
