Door and Kewaunee counties slip into low COVID-19 community level

Door and Kewaunee counties find themselves in the low COVID-19 community level for the first time in months, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Both counties have not been in that category since the beginning of July. The metric is based on the number of new cases and hospitalizations and the current number of hospital beds occupied by COVID-positive people. In this week’s Door County’s situation update, the public health department announced 30 new cases of COVID-19 out of 84 tests administered earlier this week and no additional deaths or hospitalizations. Washington Island is experiencing a surge, according to the Washington Island Community Health Program. They canceled their office hours along with some of their special events occurring due to the elevated cases on the island. Kewaunee County reported last week 26 new cases and no additional deaths or hospitalizations. Nearly half of the state’s counties, including Door and Kewaunee counties, are currently at the low COVID-19 community level.
