The best advice is to be very careful when going to bars and restaurants to avoid possible exposures, and we are seeing a trend in our cases visiting these places.

“Our COVID-19 Compass is still at a high risk for the spread of COVID-19, which lists precautions to take as a community member or business owner.”

The 10 cases Sunday bring La Crosse County to 125 total cases, with 62 considered recovered and three currently hospitalized. The county has reported zero deaths because of the virus.
