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

Editor's note: For the week of Sept. 13-20, newly diagnosed COVID-19 cases represent the date span of Sept. 10-19 due to limitations with state data. Vaccination records are from Sept. 13-20.
