Wisconsin again hit a new record for positive COVID-19 tests today. The numbers for today show 2887 new cases. Six of the last 7 days have been over 2000 new infections per day for the state. Locally in Dunn County, we now have another 21 new positive cases today, which in conjunction with the last few days will overtax the ability to do contact tracing. This will inevitably lead to still more infections in the county. There has still only been one death in the county.
