New cases of COVID-19 crept into the single digits over the weekend as last month’s Omicron-fueled surge gets further in the rear-view mirror.
Only six of the 47 tests performed since Friday’s situation update from the Door County Public Health Department came back positive for COVID-19. The update did offer some somber news as one more hospitalization and an additional death were reported, though those numbers tend to lag from what is being seen locally due to the state’s database.
On Friday, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported the seven-day average was at 1,371 new cases of COVID-19 with the percentage of those testing positive at 7.8 percent.
The Door County Public Health Department will host one more opportunity this month to get vaccinated. It will take place at the Door County Government Center from 12-4 p.m. by appointment, though walk-ins are still encouraged.
