Wisconsin Department of Health Services

The Wisconsin DHS site is also providing up to date information about the COVID-19 disease, specific to Wisconsin.

According to this site, the main way COVID-19 is spread to others is when an infected person coughs or sneezes. This is similar to how influenza is spread. The virus is found in droplets from the throat and nose. When someone coughs or sneezes, other people near them can breathe in those droplets. The virus can also spread when someone touches an object with the virus on it. If that person touches their mouth, face, or eyes the virus can make them sick.

The JCHD’s website provides local information and resources for businesses and community members regarding the COVID-19 disease, including their priority areas for staying up to date on the subject, as well as suggestions for what you can do to stay safe and prevent the spread of the disease.

According to their site, the JCHD aims to prevent the spread of illness among the public by offering educational resources, communicable disease surveillance, and investigation when needed. Since January, their public health professionals have been hard at work preparing for and monitoring the coronavirus.
