Despite one new hospitalization reported in Door County, you saw things get better across the state in its battle against COVID-19. Door and Kewaunee counties remained at the low community level for COVID-19 since mid-January.

Door County Public Health reported that 19 of the 56 submitted tests returned positive for COVID-19 and three were probable. There were no new deaths reported. CDC data shows Kewaunee County with six new cases of COVID-19 out of 53 tests performed.
