State releases dashboard that shows COVID-19 data by city, school district

The state Department of Health Services has released a dashboard that allows people to see COVID-19 data by municipality, school district and ZIP code. Previously, data was only sorted by county and census tract.

Starting in December 2020, the state Department of Health Services started releasing COVID-19 data for cities, villages and townships, as well as school districts and ZIP codes.

The state Department of Health Services receives data from county health departments and hospitals that are uploaded into its electronic disease surveillance system by 9 a.m. the day of the report. At 2 p.m., the department releases new information on its website.

The Fitchburg Star has compiled the prevalence of COVID-19 in Fitchburg between Monday, Oct. 4, and Monday, Oct. 11. The Star plans to keep running regular COVID-19 number updates to provide more information to readers.

Cumulative cases are a representation of all cases reported since March 15, 2020.

The data dashboard can be located at dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/data.htm.

Editor’s note: Vaccination data is only through Thursday, Sept. 30, due to lack of available state data from Oct. 1-4.
