Counties deal with lag in reporting numbers

As you have probably learned over the last 18 months, COVID-19 can change a lot of things in an instant. That is especially true when it comes to reporting the county-by-county numbers, which rely on the rest of the state to provide accurate counts. Door County presents its numbers twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays usually while Kewaunee County does the same on Fridays. Without one clearinghouse for data in the state until the very end, Door County Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise says there could be a lag in the numbers you see.

On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported the seven-day average of new confirmed cases of COVID-19 is 1,825. That is about where it has been for three of the last four days and down by approximately 100 from just over the week ago. The seven-day average for deaths has climbed in that same time period however from 11 to 17.
