“The infections in Winnebago County have been rapidly increasing over the past several weeks,” stated Doug Gieryn, director/health officer for the Winnebago County Health Department. ” At this time, you should assume any public place in the community has infected person(s) present. The best way to minimize the current surge is by using the prevention strategies we know work, such as wearing masks and getting vaccinated when possible. The Time Community Theater continues to be a great partner as a host for our community vaccination clinics.”
