The ninth positive case is a woman in her 60s who is recovering at home. The 10th case, a woman in her 30s, also is recovering at home.

So far, Vernon County has administered 799 tests, which yielded 734 negative results and 10 positive results. The health department is no longer reporting how many cases are pending.

The Vernon County Health Department states, “As a reminder, community spread of Covid-19 has occurred in our region and throughout the state. This means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they were infected.

“The best way to protect yourself and others is to stay at home as much as possible, especially if you are experiencing signs of illness; wear a fabric mask when in public; practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from other people; wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.

“According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Safer at Home was working! Please continue to follow their suggested guidelines.”
