No panic despite elevating COVID cases

Protecting yourself from COVID-19 in the best way you deem fit is the message from the Door County COVID-19 Response Coordinator. The latest situation report from the Door County Public Health Department showed 44 of the 131 tests administered came back positive for COVID-19. Door County  COVID-19 Response Coordinator Bill Hartman says the overwhelming majority of these cases have been the Omicron BA.2 variant of the coronavirus. That is good news for most people because even though it is very contagious, it does not carry the same severe symptoms other variants have had in the past. Door County did not see a hospitalization for the sixth time in seven weeks and has not recorded a death during that time. Hartman encourages people to stay up-to-date on vaccinations, especially if you plan on going to crowded places with a wide array of people attending.

On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services announced the new seven-day average for new COVID-19 cases was 1,925, up nearly 600 from the previous week. The seven-day average for deaths in the state has also climbed to seven, up from three during the same time frame.
