LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WKBT) – The La Crosse County outbreak and investigation page COVID-19 added five establishments to the high-risk category and one to the low-risk group on Wednesday.
New high-risk sites and periods in which people may have been exposed include:
• Iron Fitique Gym at La Crosse, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., July 16.
• Jimmy’s North Star in La Crosse, July 16-18.
• Star Hall in La Crosse, 6-7: 30 p.m., July 16.
• Milwaukee Burger Company in La Crosse, July 22 and 23.
• Red lobster in La Crosse, July 22.
Those who have had a high-risk exposure must complete the screening and risk recommendation form on the COVID-19 page.
New to the low-risk list is Boost Mobile in La Crosse, from 4:30 pm to 4 pm on July 18.
The establishments remain on the list 14 days after the presence of the last known positive case. Just because a business appears on the page doesn’t necessarily mean they did something wrong – nor does having a page always mean the business needs to be shut down.
La Crosse County Department of Health reported nine new laboratory-confirmed cases on Wednesday, pushing the country to a total of 767. Of those, 650 cases are considered recovered, five are hospitalized and one La Crosse resident has died.
The overall positive tests are 4.5%.
Today’s demographics are two women 30-39, three men 20-29, two women 20-29 and two 60-69 women.
The Wisconsin Department of Health said 16,288 negative tests had been completed in La Crosse County, including 191 on Tuesday.
