COVID-19 Information & Statistics

In an effort to keep our community safe and informed regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Door County Medical Center has collaborated with leaders from Door County Public Health to develop an online information center.

While COVID-19 is a new disease, it is spread the same way as many seasonal viruses, including influenza. Influenza and influenza-like illness are currently at a high level in our area. To avoid the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19 and other viruses, we recommend adhering to the following guidelines:

  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer. Look for one that is 60% or higher alcohol-based.
  • Cough and sneeze into a tissue (make sure to throw it away after each use!) or to cough and sneeze into your arm or elbow, not your hands. Teach kids to do the same.
  • Clean and disinfect your home and workspace as usual using regular household disinfectants, paying special attention to frequently touched surfaces (doorknobs, countertops, etc.).

If You Are Experiencing Flu-Like Symptoms

Individuals with underlying illness or immunocompromised status are at greatest risk, but anyone can be tested who is experiencing one or more of these symptoms: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache, fatigue, muscle aches, diarrhea, nausea, an alteration in taste or smell, or any respiratory illness/viral illness symptoms. Please call the DCMC COVID-19 Hotline at 920.746.3700 - Open 7 days a week from 8 AM to 4:30 PM. Individuals experiencing shortness of breath should go directly to our Emergency Department which is open 24/7.
