14 New COVID-19 Cases Confirmed Over Weekend In FDL County

01-Jun-2020

The COVID-19 numbers were down statewide, but that wasn’t the case in Fond du Lac County. County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller announced Monday there were 14 additional confirmed positive tests for COVID-19 that came back over the weekend. That brings the total confirmed count to 214. 


Mueller stated there are now 90 active cases, with 9 hospitalizations. Mueller said they expect to see positive cases pop up over the next weeks and months, but said the key will be in keeping the number of people who contract the disease low, and the ones who do get sick, from requiring hospitalization. 


It’s been a month since businesses began reopening in the county, and Mueller says she’s been impressed with how businesses have opened and the plans the businesses put in place as to how they would reopen. And the plans in place are working. But she also said there are also no excuses when it comes to protecting yourself and those around you. And that means staying home when you are sick. Avoiding gatherings that would involve large numbers, and remember to continue to wash your hands and wear a mask when at all possible.

So 500 people gathered yesterday in FDL was ok? Promoted, Reported and congratulated even. Hypocritical.
Can someone explain the disconnect?

Not sure what the question is. There is no "safer at home" order in place. A VAST majority of the people who marched were wearing face masks. And most (not all) were adhering to some sort of social distancing. It's recommended that there not be large gatherings, but there was nothing illegal going on.

No question about it. Some one speaks with forked tongue.

What are you talking about? What say does the County Health Department have in a legal walk? They probably don't like the fact of 500+ people gathering, but can't do much about it. So what's your point?

I think the point someone was trying to make is stop trying to have it both ways. So many people on here argue about "protecting others" and following the health department guidance. People were ticketed a month ago for sitting inside a restaurant. Others called the cops when masks were not being worn. And suddenly in the name of social justice it's all "ok". Has nothing to do with being illegal. So like some of you said a few short weeks ago don't blame me when you infect grandma and she dies cause you "had" to protest.

Double standard again! Ok to walk and protest in large numbers but don’t you dare hold a graduation for students and make sure you don’t sit to close to someone in church. It did t look like social distancing was much of a concern. I didn’t know that a police officer killed someone in our city.

Time to form neighborhood/community militias! Police/ local officials afraid to protect us because of political correctness!!

Double standards. Can't do or say anything politically uncorrect. KFIZ being one of those politically correct, that's how they survive by saying yes sir.
