Wisconsin Officials Bracing for Possible COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak | News | WTAQ
Officials in charge of health, travel and education in Wisconsin are gearing up this week after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Americans to prepare for the spread of the Wuhan Coronavirus.
It’s not just health officials, either. UW-Green Bay is monitoring the situation as well.
“We’re closely working with our international student population, as well as students studying abroad,” said Brent Blahnik, the Director of International Education at UW-Green Bay. “We have brought one student back early from an overseas study abroad program out of an abundance of caution.”
Only one case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in the state of Wisconsin, with a few more tests still pending. 53 cases have been reported within the United States.
