After two weeks at the medium community level for COVID-19, Door County has been lowered back into the low community level.
The Door County Public Health Department confirmed the news on Friday after it had been at the medium level since May 20th. COVID-19 community levels are determined by a combination of new hospitalizations, current hospital beds occupied by COVID-19 patients, and new COVID-19 cases. Being in the low level means there is a limited impact on the healthcare system and there are low amounts of severe disease in the area. You are still encouraged to stay up to date on your vaccines and get tested if you have symptoms.
According to the county’s situation update on Monday, 58 of the 157 tests administered last week came back positive for COVID-19.
Statewide, 11 counties are in the high community level, 20 are at the medium community level, and the rest of the 72 counties are at the low community level.
