More states requiring mask-wearing; COVID-19 cases increase in area

As more states are issuing orders to require face coverings or masks while in public, local health officials are emphasizing the proactive measure when social distancing is not possible.  A recent study by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences says mask-wearing is the most effective way to stop the person-to-person spread of the airborne transmission of COVID-19.  Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard says wearing a mask will provide you with additional protection when in a crowded situation or when you cannot socially distance more than six feet.  She notes that Kewaunee County has seen a slight jump this week with nine more confirmed COVID-19 cases as testing continues to increase.

 

 

She adds that there are no hospitalizations of the 51 coronavirus cases in Kewaunee County as of Thursday.  Door County’s number went up by four to 44 confirmed COVID-19 cases with six remaining actives.  Nevada became the 19th state on Wednesday to require people to wear masks when in public.
