After a surge of positive COVID-19 cases over the weekend, The Kewaunee County Public Health Department reported three new cases on Tuesday from 34 additional tests. Active cases went down one to 24 with a total of 60 recoveries. Public Health Officer Cindy Kinnard says there was not much of a correlation between the recent positive cases. She notes that a few were family members, but for the most part, the coronavirus outbreak is a wide community-based spread right now. The ages of people now testing positive for COVID-19 is across the spectrum in Kewaunee County.
None of the 24 active cases in Kewaunee County are hospitalized at this point. Kinnard adds that all the full-time public health nurses are doing the contact tracing along with some part-time employees and two new people recently hired from the outside. She encourages everyone to be vigilant when social distancing, wear masks when in crowded places, and always do proper handwashing and sanitizing. Door County did not report a COVID-19 update on Tuesday as of 5 pm.
