Positive tests and active cases jump up

Nearly half of the reported tests for the coronavirus since Monday in Door County came back positive, according to the Door County Public Health COVID-19 report on Thursday morning.

Of the 133 tests performed, 65 were positive.  The active cases in Door County increased by 54 to 360 as a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report on Thursday shows that fully vaccinated people are at least three times less likely to be infected by COVID-19.  The report also states that fully vaccinated people were half as likely to need emergency care or hospitalization and seven times less likely to die from COVID-19.

There was just one additional hospitalization in Door County, and no new deaths were reported.

On the vaccination front, almost three-fourths (74.3%) of all Door County residents have received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
