Surges worry health officials

A surge of COVID-19 cases across the country and in the state have Door County health officials worried about what is to come. While the number of deaths has remained steady and the hospitalization rate is dropping, the rate of positive cases has been above 5 percent over the last few days. The biggest jump has occurred among people in their 20s with their cases being possibly linked to the recent protests, bar-hopping, and social gatherings over 50 people. Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise says wearing masks, using good hygiene, and practicing social distancing can be helpful to everyone.

As of Tuesday morning, Door County remains at 44 positive cases while Kewaunee County had one additional positive test to raise their total to 54.
