The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has changed its assessment of COVID-19 activity in Door and Kewaunee Counties for the worse. DHS now ranks Door as having a medium activity level from low a week ago. Kewaunee rates as high. Door County Public Health Director Sue Powers says the four cases that cropped up last week were enough to cause the downgrade. The rating does not give Powers additional authority to combat the disease, but it will have a notable effect on high school sports in the area.
Additional recoveries were reported Thursday in Door County. It has fewer than a handful of active cases, while Kewaunee County is at nine.
