FDL County Health Officer Has Recommendations For Long Weekend


Memorial Day weekend typically means lots of parades, lots of parties, and lots of getting together with family and friends. With all that has gone on the past few months, the Fond du Lac County Health Department is asking residents to make sure you do your part this weekend, to make sure we keep COVID-19 under wraps in the community. 

Although the “Safer At Home” order has been lifted, Fond du Lac County Health Officer Kim Mueller reminds everyone the virus “is still circulating in the community and remains highly infectious. We now know individuals can be contagious up to two days prior to showing any symptoms. The virus is far from over, and we all need to do our part to keep fighting the COVID-19 virus.” Mueller says everyone should follow the recommendations of the CDC and WI DHS this weekend, and they include:

* Stay at home as much as possible.

* Cancel/postpone all nonessential travel

* Avoid gatherings of 10 or more people

* Stay at least 6 feet away from other people


Mueller also says it’s wise to wear a cloth covering when you are out in public, while practicing social distancing. Cloth face coverings are not a substitute for physical distancing, washing hands, and staying home, but are helpful when combined with the other key practices.

This is BS commented on 22-May-2020 03:18 PM1 out of 5 stars
The CDC has said from the beginning the virus has an incubation period of 14 days, yet since the stay at home order got ruled unconstitutional they have been saying there are new cases of the virus within 72 hours, not the 14 day incubation period. So they are telling us that person got exposed got tested got the results back in a over crowded testing system all in 72 hours. I highly doubt it. The media is blowing this completely out of proportion. The panic the media has caused is ludacris.

You young whippersnappers. I remember the battles of Hastings in 1066. Had to chew the crossbow bolt out of my leg. And then we had the black death. Now that was a real pandemic I tell you...not like you kids nowadays.
