DHS Adds "Critically High" Category to Disease Activity Dashboard Showing Impact of COVID-19
As COVID-19 cases continue to surge, DHS launches new features on its COVID-19 data pages
November 19, 2020
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) added a “critically high” category to the Disease Activity Dashboard, which can be viewed at https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/disease.htm, to give Wisconsinites a better picture of the impact of COVID-19 in our state amidst a surge in activity. This new category indicates how alarming COVID-19 activity is in counties and regions throughout Wisconsin. The “critically high” category is nearly three times higher than “very high.” Both the state and 65 counties are at this “critically high” level as of November 11th.
