Banner staff thinks it is worth mentioning that in addition to the information within this press release the Wisconsin Department of Health Services has a regional activity level found here that shows county by county activity level for virus transmission rates. Walworth County is noted as high for the previous two week period, as is Jefferson County. To prevent getting and spreading COVID-19, make sure you practice good personal health habits and avoid being exposed to the virus.
