State number updates on COVID-19

107 deaths were reported today in Wisconsin from COVID-19. It is entirely possible that part of that sudden spike was caused by a lag in reporting over the holiday weekend, but it is clear we are still suffering badly from the pandemic.

Today Wisconsin had a record number of reported COVID-19 deaths, with 104 citizens losing their lives to the pandemic. This is after some lower numbers over the last two days. Reported infections and deaths often drop over the weekend as both tests and reporting slow down on weekend days. 

State-wide another 279 people were reported as hospitalized after a drop over the weekend in that statistic as well.

Opinion

Jeff Smith - Now is not the time to get sick

State Senator Jeff Smith
November 30, 2020

We’re finally reaching the point where we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. In recent weeks, scientists released encouraging updates regarding effective COVID-19 vaccines. Reports indicate the potential vaccines have more than 90% efficacy, meaning they get the result they expect from their drug. Time to celebrate? Let’s hope so. Time to give thanks? Absolutely!

State Senator Jeff Smith

By Senator Jeff Smith and Representative Katrina Shankland

 

As we approach another gun deer hunting season in Wisconsin, hunters are getting ready – sighting-in their rifles, remembering a sharp knife, and preparing their gear. Of course, anyone set to hunt should always be prepared, even for Wisconsin’s unpredictable weather.

State Senator Jeff Smith

And, just like that, Election Day has passed! What a relief for all of us. At the end of an election season, you may feel overwhelmed with emotion; we feel excited, relieved and disappointed all at the same time.

Thankful

WKRP Turkey Drop

November 26, 2020

This Thanksgiving I am, despite the very odd year we have all had, thankful. I'm still here. I have two daughters who came into my life in a non-traditional way, and we're still a family, though we are half a country apart today. Next year for sure. Still, I cannot help but think of the many chairs at the Thanksgiving table that are empty today, some of them permanently.
