Fond du Lac County Tops 28,000 Negative Tests, 241 Positive On Fri.

It would appear the Thursday COVID-19 numbers were just the calm before the storm, as Friday showed a downpour of positive tests in Fond du Lac County, almost 250 to be exact. We won’t know until Monday, but a large chunk of the positives may be associated to the large turnout Thursday at the drive-thru testing site at the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds, where 448 tests were administered, that according to Bobbi Hicken, the Fond du Lac County Communications and Emergency Management Director. With the large positive test count, Fond du Lac County climbed to 4,066 total positive tests. There were 305 negative tests, which also pushed the county over 28,000 since the pandemic testing began. There were no new hospitalizations, with the county currently at 14. There were almost 4,400 positive cases confirmed in the state on Friday, which has seen over 24,000 new cases of COVID-19 in just the past week.
