Kewaunee County hits very high COVID activity level

You may have to schedule a third COVID-19 shot beginning on September 20th as the number of positive cases continues a steady climb.

 

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services announced that 12 counties, including Kewaunee County, are experiencing very high COVID-19 activity levels. The level is based on a case burden, which in Kewaunee County sits at 392.4 per 100,000 people. The rest of the state, including Door County, is at a high activity level. The seven-day average of new cases climbed to 1,224 and reported deaths jumped to six.

 

The news comes as health officials from the Centers for Disease Control, the Food and Drug Administration, the Surgeon General’s office, and other agencies recommended the booster shot during a joint statement on Wednesday. The recommendation covers those who received the Pfizer, Moderna, and possibly the Johnson & Johnson vaccines and is intended to stay ahead of the coronavirus and its variants. The rollout of the booster will be similar to what it was during the initial vaccination stage with an emphasis on health care workers, nursing home residents, and other seniors.  

 

Door County will release its second report of COVID-19 numbers on Thursday and Kewaunee County will follow suit on Friday.
