Percent Of Confirmed Covid

Understanding our data: What does this chart mean?

This figure displays confirmed COVID-19 deaths distributed across group housing settings. These are displayed as a percentage of total confirmed COVID-19 deaths in Wisconsin.

Long-term care facilities include skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities .

Other group housing facilities include correctional facilities, homeless shelters, dormitories, and group homes. Group housing setting is unknown if the group housing setting information was not learned or completed in WEDSS.

About our data: How do we measure this?

The data on group housing is unknown at this time for a portion of deaths because these data have only been systematically collected since April 8, 2020. However, any COVID cases who were part of an outbreak investigation in a long-term care or other group housing facility prior to April 8 are classified under the appropriate group setting category .

  • Update or correction of case’s address, resulting in a change to their location of residence to another county or state,
  • Correction to laboratory result,
  • Update or correction of case’s address, resulting in a change to their location of residence to another county or state,
  • Correction to laboratory result,
  • Correction to a case’s status from confirmed to unconfirmed ,
  • De-duplication or merging and consolidation of case records,
  • Update of case’s demographic information from missing or unknown to complete information.

/18/20: Public Health Emergency Covid

Issued by the following Local Health Departments: Adams, Columbia, Crawford, Dodge, Grant, Green, Iowa, Jefferson, Juneau, Lafayette, Madison/Dane, Richland, Rock, Sauk, Vernon & Watertown

The impact of COVID-19 continues to affect our lives every day.  As we head into the Holiday season, the Southern Region Public Health Officers are issuing a Public Health Emergency COVID-19 Alert to urge residents to follow good public health practices this holiday season. Public Health Officers stress that it is safest to celebrate upcoming holidays with the people in your immediate household and not risk gathering with others. Traveling, hosting guests indoors, and sharing food, utensils and plates all pose significant risks, they warn.

Now is the time to be persistent with following public health recommendations.  Every act of prevention matters and will continue to be important this Holiday season, explained Debbie Siegenthaler, Chair of the Southern Regions WI Association of Local Health Departments and Boards .  

Theres still a large amount of community transmission in every area of the region and state. Keep gatherings small and wear a mask anytime youre in an indoor environment with someone that you dont live with. Our health care and public health workers continue to need the help of the community in slowing spread so that hospitals can continue to meet patient needs, Siegenthaler urged.

        Gov. Tony Evers today signed Executive Order #104 and Emergency Order #1 establishing a new statewide public health emergency and face coverings requirement, respectively, as the state continues to expand vaccination distribution across the state. Executive Order #104 is available here and Emergency Order #1 is available here

        Were working every day to get vaccines distributed and get shots in arms to get our state back to some sort of normal, said Gov. Evers. At the end of the day, vaccine supplies are limited, so while we continue to ask the federal government for more vaccines and faster, we have to keep working together to stop the spread today by continuing wear our masks, staying home whenever we can, avoiding gatherings, and doubling down on our efforts to keep our friends, neighbors, and families safe.

        Issued by the following Local Health Departments: Adams, Columbia, Crawford, Dodge, Grant, Green, Iowa, Jefferson, Juneau, Lafayette, Madison/Dane, Richland, Rock, Sauk, Vernon, Watertown

        The Public Health Officers in the Southern Region of Wisconsin are issuing a Public Health COVID-19 Advisory asking citizens to continue the critical prevention measure of wearing a mask. Public Health Officers stress that individuals should wear masks or face coverings that cover their mouth and nose when around non-household members, following current State of Wisconsin DHS and CDC guidance.

        In general, this means masking when around others who are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or are of unknown vaccination status with few exceptions . It is important to note that businesses and schools can still require masks without a State order. For additional information visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover-guidance.html 

        Health Departments in southern Wisconsin issue this alert related to continued concerns with variant strains and surrounding states experiencing increasing case counts.  It is also issued with hopes that continuing this important prevention measure can position us to have a much more enjoyable summer than was the case in 2020.

          /11/2020: Watch The Sauk County Coronavirus Update Vlog

          A few keynotes from this week’s update:

          The continued decline in new cases is great news! Thank you for continuing to practice good pandemic behavior to slow the spread while we all wait for vaccines to be more readily available. It is still vitally important to continue these preventive measures, staying home as much as possible, wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, washing your hands, and disinfecting frequently used surfaces, especially with the presence of new, more transmissible variants in WI.

          We caution that the most recent decline in new cases may be partially due to declines in testing. Last week, two of our community testing events were canceled as a result of inclement weather. Overall testing has decreased 28% in the most recent 7-day reporting period compared to the previous 7-day period. Please, if you have even one COVID-like symptom, get tested. If you have been exposed, or think you may have been exposed, get tested. 

          We are also encouraging cooperation and participation in Disease Investigation and Contact Tracing Efforts. Sauk County Public Health Disease Investigators and WI Department of Health Contact Tracers are here to help, and can provide information and resources to support you during isolation/quarantine! Please return our calls and help us complete these important supportive efforts so we can continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

            /15/2021: Joint Press Release With Reedsburg Area Medical Center Sauk Prairie Healthcare Ssm Health/st Clare Hospital

            The Food & Drug Administration , Centers for Disease Control and Wisconsin Department of Health Services have asked vaccinators to pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

            This pause is being done out of an abundance of caution while the FDA and CDC review data involving six reported U.S. cases of a rare type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine, explains Dr. Elizabeth Baker, Reedsburg Area Medical Center Chief Medical Officer. As of April 12th, more than 6.8 million doses of the J&J vaccine have been administered in the U.S., so these adverse events are extremely rare.

            This pause to investigate is a reassuring display of scientific transparency, and is standard practice in response to a potential safety signal in a new medication or vaccine, continues Mo Kharbat, SSM Health Regional VP of Pharmacy Services.  These adverse events have not been reported for the other two available COVID-19 vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna, they both remain safe and effective and we encourage Wisconsinites to get vaccinated.

            /31/2021: Sauk County Public Health Encourages Residents To Continue Wearing Face Coverings/masks In Public Places

            For over a year COVID-19 has dominated the news and our lives. Sauk County Public Health is committed to following the science along with sharing messaging from the Centers for Disease Control and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services . From the beginning, Sauk County Public Healths messaging has been informing residents how to best protect themselves and others by wearing a mask, watching your distance, and washing your hands.  

            Today the Wisconsin Supreme Court overturned Governor Evers Emergency Order requiring the wearing of masks in public. Despite this, now is not the time to stop wearing masks in public just because there is no longer a statewide order in place.

            The most recent 14-day data shows that Sauk County is still at a High COVID-19 Case Activity level. COVID-19 is still spreading in our communities, with 41% of the new cases in the past two weeks not linked to a known source case and not knowing where they could have gotten COVID-19. While we had been seeing a lower number of hospitalizations in the first half of March, we are now starting to see more COVID-19 patients in Sauk County hospitals.

            Sauk County Public Health will continue to communicate science-based best practices and share local data to educate and inform the residents of our county. Right now, the science and data indicates that we need to continue to wear masks when in public to slow the spread of COVID-19.

            Contact: Jeff Jelinek, Sauk County COVID-19 Incident Commander

            The recommendation for close contacts of a person with COVID-19 to quarantine for a full 14 days after exposure has been, and continues to be, the safest option to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Quarantine helps limit further spread of COVID-19, as someone can unknowingly spread COVID-19 before symptoms develop.

            Recently, the CDC and WI DHS have released two alternative strategies to shorten this quarantine period for close contacts. These new strategies are:

            1. Quarantine can end after Day 10 without testing IF no symptoms develop during daily monitoring. Daily symptom monitoring must continue through Day 14.

            We need to use all of the tools available to stop the spread of this disease. Quarantining close contacts is one of the most important of those tools, stated Cathy Warwick, Sauk County Public Health Deputy Director. Other tools that we can all use to stop the spread include staying home as much as possible, maintaining 6 foot physical distance from those you do not live with, wearing a face covering when you leave home, avoiding gatherings, and washing your hands. We all need to work together to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

              Events: Return Of Large Events Could Pose Problems Especially Indoors

              One big change from 12 months ago: The big events that had to be put on hold last summer and fall are happening now, even as cases rise. 

              Vaccines brought relief to music festival organizers, sports teams and other major event planners throughout the state. Armed with varying levels of COVID-19 safety protocols, they stuck them on this year’s calendar. 

              More than 600,000 aviation enthusiasts attended the Experimental Aircraft Association’s 2021 AirVenture in Oshkosh. Close to 90,000 packed Appleton for its annual Mile of Music festival. The Wisconsin State Fair drew over 800,000 visitors, and the Deer District outside Fiserv Forum attracted thousands of fans throughout the Milwaukee Bucks’ playoff run, including 100,000 the night the team won the NBA championship

              RELATED:The Brewers stadium and Bucks arena are back to 100% capacity. One health expert says that could be ‘a prescription for disaster.’

              One element these gatherings have to their advantage: They’re outdoors, where studies have found that COVID-19 transmission is almost 20 times less likely than indoors.

              But health department contact tracers found almost 500 COVID-19 cases linked to celebrations during the Bucks’ run to the championship in July. It’s a small sliver of those in attendance at the Deer District, but it still dismayed health officials, who said the number was likely an undercount. 

              Many large events will be pushed indoors as the weather turns colder, which could cause problems.
