A new, enhanced COVID-19 Information Hub is now available at www.kenoshacounty.org/covid-19, the Kenosha County Joint Information Center announced today.
The site offers links to relevant resources, answers to frequently asked questions and regularly updated local, state and national statistics on the COVID-19 virus. A mapping tool showing confirmed cases by census tract in Kenosha County is also being developed and is expected to debut by early next week.
A new resource that is now live on the site is designed to help Kenosha County residents find food resources, including food assistance, restaurants that are offering takeout and delivery, and grocery stores.
Another tool is available to help people find their polling place for the April 7 election. This has changed for many residents throughout the county, as municipalities have scaled back their list of voting locations.
“We are very excited to roll out this timely resource page to help our residents navigate the COVID-19 emergency on a variety of fronts,” said Dr. Jen Freiheit, Kenosha County Health Officer. “We want to be able to provide the most up-to-date information in one location. It will be updated daily.”
The site was developed by the Kenosha County Division of Land Information, in cooperation with the Division of Health and the Joint Information Center, which includes representatives of county and city law enforcement and emergency medical services.
It may be accessed directly at www.kenoshacounty.org/covid-19, or by clicking “Read On…” in the COVID-19 Information ribbon at the top of the Kenosha County website.
Individuals with immediate questions about COVID-19 that they are not able to have answered on the website are still asked to dial 2-1-1 or to visit https://211wisconsin.communityos.org/coronavirus/.
