COVID average quadruples in a month

You will find more masking and vaccination mandates popping around the state as the positive case load continues to increase. The seven-day average for new positive cases grew to 1,417, which is 4-and-a-half times higher than it was just a month ago. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported 1,710 new positive tests on Wednesday. Nine more deaths and 127 additional hospitalizations were also reported. Kewaunee County continues to have very high activity levels for COVID spread along with 33 other counties. Door County and the other 37 counties are experiencing high activity levels. Just under 51 percent of Wisconsin residents are fully vaccinated against the virus, a number that has ticked up along with the increasing worries about the Delta variant. Governor Tony Evers announced a plan to give $100 to anyone 12 years and older that gets their first shot before Labor Day, hoping to copy the success held in neighboring states and take advantage of the FDA’s recent full approval of the Pfizer vaccine. Door County will officially update its numbers on Thursday and Kewaunee County will follow suit on Friday.
