Department of Health Services published a news release urging residents to stay home ahead of the Fourth of July Weekend and to follow best public health practices. Nearly 20% of total COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin have tested positive within the past two weeks. Currently, 23% of Wisconsin’s total cases are people in their twenties, compared to early April, when only 11% of positive cases were in their twenties. Contact tracing from local health departments has revealed that this surge in cases among younger people can be traced back to bars.
Please, be very careful. Please continue practicing social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands. We are blessed to have no COVID-19 case in our facility as well as among employees. I know it is hard not to have our “normal lives” but through our heroic sacrifices we are safe together.
Thank you for all you do.
