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.
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.

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.
