Upon receipt of your information, you will receive a letter with isolation and/or quarantine dates from the Health Department.

LOCAL COVID-19 INFORMATION
Manitowoc County is in a CRITICALLY 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.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and remain highly effective at preventing severe disease and death. They also help prevent against infection, although 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 from COVID-19 is by staying up-to-date on your COVID-19 vaccinations. 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, go online, 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.
