Ascension Wisconsin is reminding Central Wisconsin residents not to delay seeking emergency care, emphasizing that their hospitals are equipped to safely protect patients from potential exposure to COVID-19. “We are seeing a concerning drop in the number of people coming in for serious non-COVID-related issues,” said Gregory Brusko, chief clinical officer. “Staying home, ignoring the symptoms and suffering out of fear of COVID-19 is a risk people shouldn't take with their health.”
