(WEAU) – Barron County reports the highest single-day increase of COVID-19 cases out of any county in western Wisconsin to date, with 73 new cases just Wednesday. The county has a total of 206 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 127 of those cases are considered active. Barron County has seen nearly 75 percent of its entire case total during the last two weeks. Health officials hope the recent rise in cases can serve as a wake-up call for community members who they say aren’t taking the virus as seriously as they should. Some of the 73 cases on Wednesday are tied to the Seneca Foods facility in Cumberland. On Monday, the Wisconsin National Guard did a testing site at the facility. The number of cases confirmed at the facility is unknown, but representatives for Seneca Foods says they are working with all affected employees. Health officials in Barron County say the facility followed all of the CDC guidelines and while the outbreak has played a part in the spike in cases it isn’t the whole story. “I know often times people see something like that and they like to think ‘oh that’s where it all came from’, but it’s not 100 percent from that outbreak there are a lot of other cases, like we mentioned, related to travel, gatherings, close contact with other positive cases. So while the outbreak at the food processing facility definitely played a role it certainly was not 100 percent of the new cases that came in today,” said Barron County Public Health Specialist Sarah Turner.

But we have no choice but to seek and find God’s strength and comfort to deal.
