This afternoon KT Gallagher of the Dunn County Public Health Department released the following COVID-19 update:

Currently in Dunn County there are 20 
confirmed cases of COVID-19; of these 20 cases, 9 have been released from isolation. We just want to 
reiterate how thankful we are that everyone has put so much effort into following the Safer At Home 
Orders put in place in April. Our hard work has paid off; last week it was announced that we are able 
to turn that dial one notch closer to re-opening our local economy.

On May 10th and 11th the Wisconsin Army National Guard held a testing event in Eau Claire; over 
these two days 505 tests were conducted. Residents of 14 Wisconsin counties got tested at the even. 
This includes 50 Dunn County residents, 48 Chippewa County residents and 372 Eau Claire County 
residents. The tests results are expected to be reported back to local health departments in 24 to 48 
hours of the testing event.
