COVID-19 Wisconsin Update #90 (6-15-20) 

Transitioning to weekly updates

With the continued decline in new cases and infrequent changes in the regulatory environment related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are going to transition these updates to a weekly format. If the situation changes or if there is a need for more immediate updates, we will modify and return to the daily format, we just don’t want to communicate minor changes in data to you.

However if you ever need immediate information at any time, please do not hesitate to contact us, we are still tracking on a daily basis and will get you whatever information you need.
