Wednesday afternoon saw another increase in reported COVID-19 cases for both Door and Kewaunee Counties, but at a slower pace than in recent weeks. Door announced two new positive results to bring the total to 52. There were more recoveries, though, which lowers the number of active cases down to eight. Kewaunee’s total is up one to 68, with active cases remaining stable at 10. Incubation times for the disease can range upwards of two weeks, so the full effects of the Independence Day holiday are not yet known.
The Door County Board of Supervisors is having a special meeting on July 10th at 9 a.m. to discuss whether or not a countywide measure requiring masks or other face coverings should be instituted. Dane County was the first in the state to require a mask in all indoor spaces except for restaurants.
