The Fort Atkinson School District has extended virtual learning until at least October 19th. The Jefferson County Health Department issued a Health Alert last week due to what it called the significant and uncontrolled spread of COVID-19 cases in recent weeks. The White House Coronavirus Task Force puts Fort Atkinson and Watertown on its Wisconsin red zone list for Coronavirus.
There will be an opportunity for COVID testing Friday and Saturday at the Jefferson County Fair Park. The Wisconsin National Guard is returning for free drive-through testing Friday from 10:00am to 6:00pm, and Saturday from 8:00am to 1:00pm. Online registration is recommended at registercovidconnect.wi.gov. It is free for all residents of Wisconsin ages 5 and older.
