COVID-19 is still spreading across our Wisconsin communities. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from getting sick.
Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) recommends Wisconsinites cancel or postpone all travel, including travel within the state.
DHS does not recommend travel between your private homes within the state.
For example, do not travel to seasonal homes or rental cabins.
You may spread COVID-19 to areas with few doctors or hospitals.
This is for your safety and wellbeing as well as the safety of our rural counties and tribal communities.
Through Public Health’s investigation it has been determined that community spread of COVID-19 is present in Door County.
Community spread means spread of an illness for which the source of infection is unknown.
Our best defense against COVID-19 is washing our hands frequently; avoiding touching our eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; wearing a cloth face covering in public; avoiding being around sick people; and physically distancing by staying at home.
If you have immediate questions, you may contact Public Health during business hours.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU’RE FEELING SICK
Patients with COVID-19 can experience mild to severe respiratory illness.
Symptoms of COVID-19
If you are experiencing MILD or MODERATE symptoms, such as fever, runny nose or cough, do NOT go to the Emergency Room. Call your primary health care provider prior to going to a clinic.
Your primary care provider will evaluate if testing is necessary, and direct you to a facility that can conduct sampling.
This will ensure that healthcare professionals can prepare in advance should you need to receive testing or treatment. Seeking the most appropriate level of care will help protect the community and minimize exposure to other patients and staff.
If you are experiencing SEVERE illness, call your doctor’s office immediately or go to the Emergency Room. Call ahead and let them know you may have COVID-19 so they can be prepared.
Symptoms of SEVERE illness can include*:
- · Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- · Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- · New confusion or inability to arouse
- · Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency (you cannot breathe) call 911 and tell them if you believe you may have COVID-19.
If you do not have symptoms of COVID-19, you DO NOT need to be tested.
COVID-19: Are you at a Higher Risk?
Coping tips for people facing greater risk
Adversity affects us all in different ways. That’s because our ability to manage and recover from stress is often impacted by the things that make us unique, like our background, medical histories, and the conditions in which we live, work, and grow. When the characteristics that make you unique also make you more vulnerable to health risks—like becoming severely ill from COVID-19—it can be hard to maintain your physical, emotional, and mental health. It’s natural for older adults, people with underlying health conditions, communities of color and other underserved populations, caregivers, and others facing greater risk to respond more strongly to stress during this pandemic. Learning how to gain the skills and support you need to care for yourself and the people around you can help.
Try these seven strategies
- Know your status: Are you at greater risk for COVID-19?
- Protect your physical health: Learn how to avoid illness
- Know the signs of toxic stress: They include fatigue, illness, fear, withdrawal, guilt, and other intense physical and emotional reactions.
- Step away from the news: It’s important to stay informed. But make sure to spend time in spaces where COVID-19 isn’t the only focus.
- Do things you enjoy: Take the time for self-care activities, like staying connected with friends, exercising, reading, or playing a video game with your kids.
- Talk it out: Try talking about your experiences and feelings with a trusted advisor, a loved one who’ll understand, or a mental health professional. It can help.
- Ask for and accept help: It’s important to reach out if you feel overwhelmed or concerned that COVID-19 is affecting your ability to care for your family or the people you serve.
PROTECT YOURSELF FROM COVID -19
See CDC’s advice on how to protect yourself from COVID-19.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if you do not have soap and water
- Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze, and then throw the tissue away. If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
- Do not have close contact with people who are sick and stay home if you are feeling sick.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces thoroughly.
- Practice social distancing which includes avoiding crowded places, increasing interpersonal space (ideally separation of 6 feet) and not shaking hands.
- Don’t touch eyes or mouth with hands.
- Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities
DOMESTIC TRAVEL GUIDANCE
- DHS recommends Wisconsin residents cancel or postpone all nonessential travel, including travel within the state.
- Travel between private homes within the state, including seasonal homes or rental cabins, is strongly discouraged.
- Several counties in Wisconsin have issued travel advisories for seasonal and second homeowners. If you choose to travel to a second home in Wisconsin, you should be prepared to immediately self-quarantine for 14 days. You should bring your own groceries and essentials, as self-quarantine does not permit shopping at local stores for supplies.
