Local Officials Urge Safety, WI Coronavirus Vaccine Update

WI coronavirus cases continue to top 3, 000.

The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday reported 37- hundred new positives and 82 new deaths. However, Wisconsin’s coronavirus count has steadily dropped since a peak at the beginning of November.

Here locally, Add Chippewa County Health Director Angela Weideman to the list of people suggesting quarantines just in case. Weideman yesterday said anyone who visited with people outside of their immediate family or anyone who traveled for the Thanksgiving holiday should stay at home for at least another week.

Weideman said those same people should get a coronavirus test and monitor themselves for coronavirus symptoms.

When it comes to the vaccine, the hope is to get the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine in Wisconsin out the door by the middle of the month.

The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday said they hope to start offering vaccines to those most at risk in a matter of weeks. Wisconsin and the rest of the country are waiting for the FDA to approve the vaccine for use. DHS says Wisconsin should see about 50-thousand doses to begin with.
