State sees small uptick in COVID cases

Wisconsin’s COVID-19 positivity rate remains low despite a small uptick in cases reported by the state.

 

The Department of Health Services reported on Wednesday that 102 tests came back positive, causing the seven-day average to creep up to 77 from 72.  The positivity rate remained at 0.7 percent. The seven-day average for hospitalization also crept up from 36 to 41.

 

The vaccination rate continues to crawl upward with 70 vaccines distributed in Door County this week and 37 in Kewaunee County. Over 65 percent of Door County residents and 40 percent of Kewaunee County residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccines. The White House admitted earlier this week it would fall short of its goal of having at least 70 percent of all Americans 18 years and older vaccinated. It did add it has already reached that mark with Americans 30 years and older.

 

Door County will release its weekly COVID-19 update on Thursday and Kewaunee County will follow suit on Friday.
