County Health Officer Stresses Importance of Quarantine

(Fond du Lac) Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says not everyone exposed to someone with COVID-19 will develop the virus, but most will. She says for that reason they urge people who are supposed to be in quarantine to stay at home. She says if you decide to ignore that advice and go to a large function where you don’t know that many people you could run the risk of infecting others and make contact tracing nearly impossible. She says people should be wearing masks out in public, practice social distancing, frequently wash their hands, and stay at home if they are sick.
