Door County saw the number of new positive COVID-19 tests nearly reach two dozen over the weekend, but there is still plenty of good news.
In the county’s Monday situation update, it noted that despite the new positive tests that the number of active cases dropped by 21 to 368. There were also no new hospitalizations or deaths reported, though those numbers can lag from what the state reports.
Door County reached the 73 percent threshold when it comes to residents having at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. That number could tick up even more after the Food and Drug Administration gave the Pfizer vaccine emergency use authorization for kids between the ages of 5-11. Door County Public Health has scheduled multiple vaccine clinics over the next two months for kid doses, but they need to pass the proper protocols before they can begin offering it. The department has two COVID-19 vaccine clinics set up this week for Sturgeon Bay (Wednesday) and Sister Bay (Thursday). Clinics for kids would start no sooner than November 10th if their training is completed.
