Star Journal Report
Oneida County Health Department reported a twentieth case of COVID-19 July 1. The individual is in their 50s and has a history of travel outside the area. The person is self isolating.
According to the health department’s new web page detailing outbreaks and investigations, two Minocqua businesses have been placed on a list for low risk establishments.
Low risk means a positive case was known to be at an establishment but there is low risk of contracting COVID-19 for members of the public at this establishment and all close contacts are able to be identified or there are zero close contacts. All who had contact with a low risk establishment should monitor themselves for symptoms. Risk is thought to be similar to the overall risk of community spread.
A person with a known positive test visited Norwood Pines Supper Club in Minocqua and Walmart in Minocqua June 27.
