Seven-Day Average of COVID Cases Lowest Since April 2020
On June 1, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) reported a seven-day average of positive COVID-19 cases of 213—the lowest such figure since April 2020, during the early days of virus tracking in the state. DHS registered only 106, 76 and 50 new COVID cases in the state on May 30, May 31 and June 1, respectively, bringing the average weekly case count to a level not seen in over a year.
On June 2, COVID cases statewide rose to 314. DHS has recently changed its COVID-19 summary statistics page to show seven-day averages for cases, tests and deaths from COVID-19.
The summary page also tallies disease activity by county. As of June 2, 39 counties in Wisconsin were seeing high levels of COVID activity, while 33 counties registered medium activity.
To date, 47.9% Wisconsin residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 42.1% of Wisconsinites have completed their vaccine series.
