Calumet County officials issued a new warning on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 17 saying there is “significant uncontrolled spread of COVID-19 in Calumet County and the Fox Valley area.”
A statement issued from the Calumet County Health Department said the spread is “due to a lack of community participation in physical distancing, mask-wearing, and disregard for quarantine and isolation recommendations.”
The statement added, “The uncontrolled spread is threatening the ability to keep a healthy workforce and for schools to remain open for in-person education. We all need to do our part to reduce the spread of the virus throughout our communities.
“We have an additional 24 cases in our jurisdiction today. Although our jurisdiction’s current hospitalization remains at one, our region’s overall numbers are starting to stress local hospitals.
