The City of Milwaukee’s stop-light-colored gating criteria indicates that, as of March 11th, the city has three green indicators and two yellow indicators. The criteria, according to city officials, are used to determine how to ease or tighten the city’s COVID-19 health order.

The testing metric shows an average of 1,745 tests per day over the past two weeks, with a 3.3% positive rate. The care metric shows that 3% of county hospital beds are occupied by COVID-19 positive patients.
