COVID-19 Outbreaks and Investigations

This page is a resource for the public to understand the risk for all known places within La Crosse County that the La Crosse County Health Department knows have had lab-confirmed COVID-19 exposures in the last two weeks. The risk for named close contacts of a positive case is determined separately. If you are contacted by a health department and told you are a named close contact of a positive case, your risk is determined separately, and you should follow all guidance provided by your health department.

Establishments remain on this list for 14 days after the last known positive case was present. Please note that an establishment appearing on this list does not necessarily mean they did something wrong nor does appearing on the list always mean that the establishment should be closed. Establishments have been contacted before their appearance on this list and guidance is provided about reducing future risk to staff and customers. You can see current guidance on the Coulee COVID-19 Compass.

Know that this list is about risk that has already occurred. We cannot know where people who will become positive in the next week are going right now and won’t know until the positive case is identified and the disease investigation process is complete. La Crosse County has confirmed community spread. If you are in a public place, you should expect to come into contact with COVID-19. It remains important to protect yourself and others with frequent hand washing, physical distancing, fabric face coverings and staying home when you have any symptoms.

Learn how we decide which establishments are considered low, medium or high risk.

Definitions:

HIGH: Significant risk of contracting COVID-19 for members of the public at this location during a specific time period. All who had contact during the time period specified should complete the Risk Screening and Referral Form to be referred for testing and quarantine at home. Additionally, risk of community spread is still present.

MEDIUM: Moderate risk of contracting COVID-19 for members of the public at this location during a specific time period, but the amount of exposure was limited. All who had contact with a moderate risk establishment should monitor themselves for symptoms. It is not necessary to complete the Risk Screening and Referral Form. Additionally, risk of community spread is still present.

LOW: A positive case was known to be at an establishment, but there is low risk of contracting COVID-19 for members of the public at this location. All who had contact with a low risk establishment should monitor themselves for symptoms. Risk is thought to be similar to the overall risk of community spread.

PUBLIC NOTIFICATION: This means we are actively seeking contacts of a positive case from an establishment or event. The public notification process will include outreach through social and traditional media to attempt to find all contacts.

CLOSE CONTACT: Individual who has been within six feet of a lab-confirmed positive case of COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more OR an individual who has direct exposure to bodily fluids (for example, through coughing, sneezing, spitting, or singing).
