La Crosse Hospital sees fewer COVID-19 admissions

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Gundersen Health System experiences fewer admissions of COVID-19 patients.

Infection prevention expert Megan Meller says a high vaccination rate and more accessible drugs to treat patients with the virus are contributing to a slowdown in cases in the La Crosse area.

La Crosse Hospital has already closed one of its two COVID-19 units.

“I feel like this is the first time in a very long time that the light at the end of the tunnel, the hope that this is starting to become more a part of our routine, is actually getting much closer,” Meller said. “The pandemic is not over yet, but I certainly think we are approaching.”

Gundersen Health System will continue to keep COVID-19 tests available.
