Caution Recommended For Those At Risk From COVID-19

Older and at risk people need to stay aware of their COVID-19 risks – and consider masking up in certain situations.

Dr. Jim Conway at UW Health says, “Big sporting events indoors, where a lot of people are yelling and screaming with masks off, whether it’s sporting events, or concerts and things like that, you know, those are the places that I would be a little bit more cautious and probably continue to recommend wearing masks for those populations that are at slightly higher risk.”

Second booster doses are highly recommended for those individuals.

As of Friday, COVID community levels were high in 11 Wisconsin Counties. The Wisconsin Hospital Association reported 375 COVID patients, including 54 in the ICU.
