The Centers for Disease Control recommends wearing a mask indoors and on public transportation, staying up to date with your vaccinations, getting tested when you have symptoms, and taking additional precautions if you are at risk after Door County’s COVID-19 community level was raised to high.
Door and nearby Brown counties are two of the 14 counties currently at the high community level for COVID-19. Kewaunee County is one of 30 to be considered at the medium level. Manitowoc County and 27 others are at the low level. Community levels are determined by case rate per 100,000 population, new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100,000 population, and percentage of staffed inpatient beds used by those with confirmed COVID-19.
