Manitowoc County is in a VERY HIGH state of COVID-19 transmission. Manitowoc County Health Department supports CDC guidance recommending that all individuals in areas of high transmission wear masks in public indoor settings, even if you are vaccinated. This recommendation is based on new information about the infectiousness of the delta variant.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and remain highly effective at preventing severe disease and death. They are also very good at preventing against infection, although rare breakthrough cases can occur. Because science has shown that wearing a mask over your nose and mouth can help prevent transmission of the respiratory droplets and aerosols that spread COVID-19, wearing a mask is now recommended, regardless of vaccination status, in public indoor settings in Manitowoc County.
The best way to protect yourself, your family, and your community is by getting fully vaccinated, and we encourage everyone to get vaccinated as soon as they are able. The Health Department also recommends staying 6 feet apart from those not in your household while in public, staying home when sick, cleaning and sanitizing high touch areas, washing your hands often, and wearing a mask, even if you are fully vaccinated.
To find a local vaccine provider, visit vaccines.gov , the Health Department COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment page, or call the Health Department (920) 683-4155.
NOTE: The Health Department issues weekly COVID-19 reports on Wednesday afternoons.
Additional county-level COVID-19 data is available through the State Department of Health Services.
