(Wisconsin) Coronavirus numbers in Wisconsin are creeping back up again. The number of new coronavirus cases in Wisconsin is at its highest level since April. State health officials reported 983 new cases Tuesday. The Department of Health Services says new case numbers are rising while vaccinations are flat-lining. Only 51 percent of eligible people in Wisconsin have at least one dose of the vaccine.
It’s merely a recommendation, but Public Health Madison and Dane County would like to see everybody – whether or not their fully vaccinated for COVID-19 – wearing masks in many indoor settings. Health director Janel Heinrich says…”when you’re indoors with people outside your household, even if you are vaccinated, you could spread COVID to someone who is not, or who is immunocompromised.” She says…”and with how contagious Delta is, we need to do all we can right now, to stop further spread of COVID.”
The recommendation follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommending that everyone in areas with high virus transmission and low vaccination rates should wear masks inside again.
