The South Milwaukee Health Department has issued its latest COVID-19 data, and you can see it on the city’s Facebook page each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Wednesday’s update shows 49 new positive tests since July 17 alone — almost a quarter of the city’s total cases since the pandemic began, in less than a week. You can find additional data points on the Milwaukee County dashboard and tracking map.
And please join me in thanking our Health Department, which has been contact tracing each COVID-19 case since March. It’s an incredible amount of work, but critical to help reduce the spread of the virus.
