The number of positive COVID-19 cases continues to hold steady in Fond du Lac County. County Health Officer Kim Mueller held a Facebook Live Press Briefing on Wednesday, and said the current case count as of Wednesday is 17. Mueller also said the numbers on the Wisconsin Department of Health website saying there are 18 positive tests in the county is incorrect.

The new numbers this afternoon should reflect the corrections on the state website.
