Coronavirus: Winona County officials advise against traveling to La Crosse

2 min read

One of the nation’s coronavirus hot spots is La Crosse, Wisconsin, which according to the La Crosse County Department of Health is averaging 114 new cases per day and a test positivity rate of more than 38% over the past seven days. 

As of Sept. 21, La Crosse County was home to 1,455 active cases of COVID-19. The significant rise in cases has prompted Winona County Emergency Management to advise Minnesota residents to avoid crossing the border into La Crosse County for non-essential activities. 

“We love our neighbors across the river, but we are advising against traveling to the La Crosse County area for leisure activities, as they are rapidly increasing in COVID-19 cases. They are seeing an increase in cases especially for ages 20-29,” Winona County Emergency Management announced Tuesday. 

“This means to stay away from bars, restaurants, non-essential shopping and other non-essential activity.” 

The surge in case activity comes amid the return of students to college campuses, including the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, which has eliminated all in-person instruction in favor of virtual learning to help slow transmission.
