The positive direction of Door County’s fight against COVID-19 took a minor detour on Thursday as the public health department ramps up its vaccination efforts.
Out of 126 tests administered, 36 came back positive for COVID-19. The number of active cases went up 15 to 338. That is only the 3rd time since the middle of October that Door County saw an increase in active cases in one of its two weekly reports.
Just under 74 percent of Door County residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The public health department announced earlier this week it would be having two drive-through clinics for the COVID-19 vaccine at the Door County EMS building before taking the week off for Thanksgiving. Children ages 5-11 on Washington Island will have one of their first chances to get vaccinated on December 2nd from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. by appointment only.
