Webster County Health Leaders Concerned About COVID-19 Spread

Health leaders in Webster County are reporting a resurgence in the number of COVID-19 cases.

The health unit says there are just over 200 active cases in the county.

Public Health Unit Administrator Scott Allen says he’s concerned about people standing shoulder to shoulder at the Webster County Fair, which kicks off Tuesday, and the Fourth of July parade in Marshfield this weekend.

The fair board president says masks are not required for anyone attending or for people working at the fair.

Allen is also concerned about people coming in from other areas for these events, and creating more opportunities for the virus to spread.

The fair was cancelled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
