RHINELANDER - For staff at Wild Instincts, treating diseases and parasites is part of the job.

"We know how these things spread and how it goes so it really isn't a big surprise for us seeing what happened," said wildlife rehabilitator Mark Naniot.

That's why staff are being extra careful when it comes to COVID-19.

"If we get sick and we aren't able to care for the animals it's going to make the problem even worse," said Naniot.

For the last couple weeks, the animal rehabilitation center has suspended all non-essential volunteers in an effort to keep its people and the animals safe.

"We are down to a skeleton staff at this point," said Naniot. "We had about 140 drivers and we cut them off also. We're not having them go out and interact. We do a few close rescues when we can [and] we still have about 50 animals here on site."

MADISON - Wisconsin's economy will be harder hit by the coronavirus pandemic in areas where there is more tourism, a study by the Wisconsin Policy Forum released on Tuesday said.

The study found that counties that depend heavily on tourism face the greatest challenges due to the concentration of jobs related to hotels, restaurants, entertainment and recreation. The virus outbreak has forced closures of nonessential businesses across the state, including many that rely on tourists like water parks in Wisconsin Dells, professional and collegiate sporting events and historical sites throughout the state.

It's been hard for most students. But seniors are especially concerned 

They worried they may miss out on important milestones.
