Chippewa County has a new case of the coronavirus.
The state’s Department of Health Services confirmed a new case in the county yesterday. That brings the total to eight people sick in Chippewa County, 11 people sick in Eau Claire County, and three people sick in Dunn County. Across all of Wisconsin, more than 14-hundred people are sick with the virus.
Meanwhile, when it comes to the front lines, the city of Eau Claire is getting a little bit more than 300-thousand-dollars to boost its effort to fight the coronavirus. The federal government awarded the city 316 thousand-dollars this week. No one at city hall is saying just what the money is earmarked for.
