Since its onset in early 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has taken a profound toll on educational systems across the globe. According to UNESCO, by the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year approximately 1.077 billion students worldwide were being affected by school closures in some way.

Schools do not only provide a place of learning for their students, they provide support and community as well. Indeed, they are rightly viewed as the bedrock of their communities. In looking to understand how Door County’s teachers, school staff and school administrators have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic—how they have adjusted and continued to teach, to provide support and community to their students—we spoke with Dan Tjernagel, Superintendent of the Sturgeon Bay School District, and with Patti Vickman, Superintendent of the Southern Door School District.

Madeline Shortall of Brussels knows what she’s got to do to protect her community from COVID-19 and other harmful viruses. Be like Madeline.
Today we honor the social and economic achievements of American workers. As you celebrate, let’s do our part to keep all workers safe: Remember to practice social distancing and to wear a mask.
Schools are starting back up across the country and, for places where school has been in session for two or more weeks, cases of COVID-19 are on the rise. It’s more important now, more than ever, that individuals are diligent about wearing masks in any public places. It may feel inconvenient, but this simple act can protect our community from the virus.
I just wanted to thank DCMC and the Fish Creek Clinic for the excellent treatment I received days ago and today during my surgical stay at the hospital. From the pre-op phone calls to the nurses (Jackie, Wendy, Kurt, and Cindy), and the doctors. You make the decision to have treatment in Door County instead of Green Bay easy. Words can not express how grateful I feel for having a great hospital and staff here in Door County. Thank you and your families for being Gods front line workers.
Ok Door County Memorial! Ok Door County Public Health!!! Wtf!!!! So yesterday, a popular local business did the RIGHT thing by posting that they were closing their doors because an employee who tested positive for covid. They also did the RIGHT thing when they said the other employees would be tested. So this morning, someone close to me, who is a regular at this business, called the hospital, asking for an appointment to get tested. This person would be considered compromised. (No judgements please). And they refused to test this person, because they had no symptoms. Said they hadn’t even heard about the employee who tested positive. Now, regardless of whether they had yet been notified, why are they refusing to test people. And what about the other employees who worked around the positive one. They may not be showing symptoms yet either, so I imagine they will also be denied. What is really going on when our residents do the RIGHT thing, yet are sent home, turned away. WTF!!!!!!
And today Cynthia's friend Karen [around 70 years old died from Covid-19 in the Sturgeon Bay hospital. She was on a ventilator and medically induced comma for a week. And she was improving. They brought her out of the comma and removed the vent 4 days ago. Her oxygen levels kept falling. Not enough oxygen levels in the blood. She was in pretty good health until this. Rode her bicycle a lot with her husband all over town. Her husband tested positive but shows no symptoms and is doing fine. I think all will get it and some will die.
