COVID-19 cases have spiked again in Brown County. Since Halloween, the county has seen 57 new cases of the virus, bringing the total COVID cases to 422 as of Tuesday. The 15 latest laboratory confirmed cases are spread throughout age groups; involving two under the age of 10, three in their teens, one in their 20, one in their 40, four in their 50s, three in their 60s and one in their 90s. In Brown County, 11 people have been hospitalized from the virus, but none are currently hospitalized. Sixty-nine people remain in isolation, and 348 have recovered. Brown County Public Health Director Karen Moritz said no one event is causing the spread and no single location is the source. The increase seems to result from small family and social gatherings.
