No reason to panic as hospitalizations elevate COVID community level for Door County

Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise does not want you to overreact after Door County’s COVID-19 community level was elevated from low to high in a week.

 

Last Thursday, Door County joined nearby Brown County as some of the 11 counties in the high community level for 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. Door County saw 47 new cases and two additional hospitalizations pop up over the last week. The number of new cases was actually the lowest it has been since the beginning of May and Heise says the two hospitalized individuals showed no clinical disease associated with COVID-19.

 

He advises people to do what they can to protect themselves the best way they can.

Friday’s daily COVID-19 update showed the seven-day average for new cases sitting at 1,639, the lowest it has been since June 1st
