NEILLSVILLE, WI—The Clark County Health Department is confirming that one person in Clark County has tested positive for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). The individual is currently isolated at home. County health officials are working to determine how the person may have become infected and is contacting individuals with whom the patient had close contact with.

This is in addition to taking standard precautions and practicing good health habits—including covering coughs and sneezes and washing hands often. The COVID-19 situation is continuously evolving. We encourage residents to monitor the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) websites for the latest information and guidance,” said Brittany Mews, Clark County Health Department Director/Health Officer.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you think that you may have COVID-19, you should stay home, practice self-isolation, and call your medical provider—do not go directly to a hospital or clinic without first calling. Emergency lines should be reserved only for those needing emergency medical attention.

ï‚· Carry and use a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol if hand washing is not an option.
ï‚· Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth, etc.).
ï‚· Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
ï‚· Do not share eating utensils, water bottles, beverages, or other personal items.
ï‚· Stay home.

Levy Increase questions
January 15th 2020
The Town Board has been getting a lot of questions regarding the levy increase. The actual levy allowed by the State of Wisconsin is based on the net new construction in the township, this is $180,001. Then the town has a debt obligation of $100,156 which is added on to the levy amount each year that we still have a payment due. This makes the total levy amount $280,157. This is what the Town Board approved on the December 2nd meeting so the levy could be sent on to the County Treasurer.
If the requested increase in levy had been approved the total levy amount would have been $380,157. I hope this answers some of your questions.
