COVID-19 cases continue to spike in Door and Kewaunee

Positive tests for COVID-19 continue to jump in Door and Kewaunee counties. Kewaunee County added 19 more positive cases on Tuesday (290 total) with eight new recoveries, while Door County reported 12 more cases (200 total) with three recoveries.  Kewaunee County’s positivity rate skyrocketed to 56 percent on Tuesday with only 34 test results returned.  Kewaunee County Health Officer Cindy Kinnard says the increase in cases is caused by larger group gatherings like parties, camping, and weddings.

Kinnard emphasizes that people need to be socially distant while continuing to wear masks and washing their hands consistently. Door County showed a positivity rate of 8.2 percent which is down half from Monday’s number.   Active cases show to be 65 in Kewaunee County with one hospitalization and 48 active cases in Door County.
