COVID-19 Situational Awareness Update

The COVID-19 Situational Awareness Update was developed by the Wisconsin Hospital Association Information Center (WHAIC) in collaboration with the Department of Health Services (DHS). This dashboard is dynamic and will be enhanced as new data and insights arise.

Data Sources: CDC COVID-19 Community Level data comes from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention. For more information on recommended individual-, household- and community-level COVID-19 prevention strategies for each risk level, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. COVID-19 cases and deaths data come from the DHS Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS). All other data comes from EMResource.

*Testing data represent the number of people tested by a confirmatory, diagnostic test that detects the virus in the nose or throat (and not a blood test that detects antibodies). No antigen or antibody test results are included in this figure. Multiple tests per person are not included in these summary statistics.

On May 10, 2022, “% Positive Tests and Total Tests Per Day” was changed to “7-Day % Positive by Test, Total Tests by Day” to show test results for people each time they are tested. If someone tests positive or negative more than once, each test is counted on the date the testing lab reports.
