The announcement was made Thursday (3/19) by the Racine Public Health Department. It’s believed the two patients caught the virus in Wisconsin through community interaction and not by overseas travel.

Mayor Cory Mason declared a state of emergency for Racine Wednesday. In a statement he said that “While these are the first two official cases, they will not be the last…We’re doing everything we can to flatten the curve and reduce the number of new possible cases…”
