“Testing uncovers positive cases earlier,” Winona County Emergency Management Coordinator Ben Klinger said. “The test results will provide important data about the degree of spread in our area and help to guide efforts to combat COVID-19 and protect those who are most vulnerable to serious complications.”
“Many who contract COVID-19 may experience mild or even no symptoms, but some suffer life-threatening complications,” Winona County Public Health Supervisor Melanie Tatge said. “All who contract the virus are contagious. Testing large numbers of people in an area already experiencing community spread, isolating those who are positive, and quarantining their close contacts is a proven strategy for fighting spread of a virus like COVID-19.”
