MADISON, Wis. (AP/CBS 58) — Wisconsin's presidential primary election held last month in the face of the coronavirus pandemic drew concern from doctors, voters, poll workers and politicians.
Now far beyond the 14-day incubation period for COVID-19 it remains largely unknown just how many people contracted the virus at the polls.
"We did a very good job in terms of putting these health measures in place to minimize the spread. And I think that we're seeing that show up in some of these analyses of what happened after the election," said Ann Christiansen, Director of the North Shore Health Department.
Public health experts say a lack of testing, not enough contact tracing, difficulty in pinpointing where a person got infected and the fact that some people are infected but have no symptoms and therefore don't get tested, all make it nearly impossible to quantify the impact COVID-19 during the election.
