The levels of COVID-19 in our community, our county, the region and the state of Wisconsin are in crisis.
The past week exceeded previous projections in the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19. Key metrics have yet again moved the wrong direction. One in three people tested for COVID-19 in our county tests positive. Hospitals are in distress. Public health departments cannot keep up. The need for action by the community is urgent. Without action the worst is yet to come. Stay home as much as you can. Wear a mask and stay six feet from others if you must go out. Talk to your staff and coworkers, talk to your family and friends. This is tough and it is tiring, but your actions save lives. It only works if we do it together. Our community must come together to slow this down.
