Public health investigators are looking at nursing homes and meat packing plants as Wisconsin’s coronavirus numbers continue to grow. The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday reported 225 new coronavirus cases and four new deaths.
Many of those new cases are in Brown County and could be tied or a meat packing plant there. The new cases yesterday are a jump as cases had been trending down over the past week.
Still, here in our backyard we are not adding to that number. DHS says Eau Claire, Chippewa, and Dunn counties are holding at 52 cases.
