The seven-day average and the positivity rates for COVID-19 in the state continued to climb Wednesday ahead of the weekly reports from Door and Kewaunee counties.
The seven-day average for COVID-19 climbed to 478 in the latest report from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. The positivity rate of tests taken also rose to 5.3 percent, which is a substantial increase from a 2021 low of 0.7 percent just over a month ago. The department suggests that 98 percent of the newest COVID-19 cases were among those not fully vaccinated.
Door County will release its full report on Thursday, which will be followed up by Kewaunee County on Friday.
