Welcome to the Wisconsin Examiner’s updated Wisconsin COVID-19 Data Page.
We’ll continue to update existing data displays as well as present new data as time passes. Unless otherwise specified, all data comes from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS). The most recent data here is through June 4, 2020.

The first chart tracks new cases county by county with each day.


Another way to look at the same data is to provide a 7-day moving average for new cases. This presentation smooths out sharp day-to-day variations.


This chart compares the day-to-day trends in number of positive COVID-19 tests in each county against the total number of tests conducted for that county. These numbers are cumulative over time, and are displayed by each individual county.
