COVID-19 cases continue to spike, one death reported

With health officials reporting that Wisconsin has the fourth-worst rate of COVID positivity of any state in the country, Door County Public Health’s COVID-19 data on Thursday showed a significant increase in positive tests.  Since Monday, Door County has reported 101 new cases of the 206 test results.  The number of active cases also jumped by 86 and now stands at an even 400.  Three more people were hospitalized, and one more COVID-19-related death was reported though those numbers could lag based on the information they receive from the state.

The second omicron case was confirmed in the U.S. on Thursday, as Minnesota health officials stated a resident who had traveled to New York City tested positive.  

On the vaccination front, nearly three-fourths (74.8%) of Door County residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.  Door County Public Health is offering second vaccine doses for COVID-19 for children 5 to 11 years old at the ADRC building by appointment from 4 until 6 pm this Friday. 


Door County Medical Center’s Fish Creek clinic announced pediatric COVID-19 vaccination clinics for Tuesday, December 14, and Thursday, December 16, from 4 until 6 pm.  The first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be available to kids five to 17 years old with required appointments.  The Door County Medical Center’s clinic staff will not be giving adult boosters during the Pediatric vaccination clinics.  To make an appointment for your child, call (920) 868-3511.
