Contact tracing emphasized as cases go up -- UPDATED

Contact tracers for Door and Kewaunee Counties are being kept busy as COVID-19 cases climb across the state. As of Monday afternoon, Door County went up four to 49 total positive cases while Kewaunee County climbed to 64 over the holiday weekend according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Door County Public Health Director Sue Powers said last week the state is looking into taking over contact tracing efforts if multiple positive cases can be tied to a single location.

Powers reassured residents that contact tracers are trying to help control the spread while also abiding by HIPAA protections. Contact tracers will not ask for personal details like a social security number or bank account information.
