The individual is isolated at a hospital in the region.

Last Thursday, March 19, Dunn County had its first positive test. Gallagher said that individual had experienced mild symptoms and had traveled both internationally and within the United States to areas that have community spread.

The county health department reminds individuals to following steps to prevent the spread of the virus by staying at home, practicing good hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces and practice social distancing.

If you are having symptoms — fever, cough, difficulty breathing — first call your doctor.

Gallagher will be having a weekly video recap of all the latest COVID-19 updates on the Dunn County Facebook page (facebook.com/dunncountywi) on Friday at 3 p.m.
