You are being recommended to mask up indoors and take other precautions as Door County re-enters the high community level for COVID-19. Door County has been in and out of the three different community levels since the Centers for Disease Control introduced the new way to track disease activity earlier this year. Since the beginning of June, Door County has spent approximately three weeks in the high level and four weeks in each of the medium and low levels. 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.
In Monday’s situation update, Door County Public Health reported 57 new cases of COVID-19 out of 130 tests administered. It also noted one recent hospitalization. New case counts do not include positive or negative results from at-home tests.
Much of northeast Wisconsin is in either the high or medium COVID-19 community levels. Door County joins over 20 other counties in the high level. Kewaunee County is currently listed at the medium COVID-19 community level.
