* About “% Positive”: We had been previously reporting the percent positive as a percent of all test results, however the number DHS had been reporting was the percent of people that tested negative for the first time plus those who tested positive. DHS now reports both on their website, percent positive of all tests and percent positive of all tested for the first time (positive and negative); https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/data.htm, with a description of why they focus on one versus the other. We are no longer going to include the  % positive in this update and just update on hospitalizations, positive test results and deaths, but that information is always available at the DHS link.
