MILWAUKEE – This week’s gating metrics showed a slight increase. The disease burden rate moved back into the “moderate transmission” category, at 13.2 positive cases per 100,000 people. The percent test positivity also increased slightly to 1.3% but remains in the “low transmission” category. As of this week, 52.7% of Milwaukee adults have received at least their first dose of vaccine and 47.7% have completed their vaccination series.

“We have learned over the past 16 months to anticipate fluctuations in disease burden,” said Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson. “We will continue to watch our data and metrics closely, but unless we see a prolonged increase in cases, we will not issue health orders.”

The Milwaukee Health Department anticipates many people gathering with friends and family for the 4th of July weekend and encourages everyone to continue to exercise COVID-19 safe practices, including gathering outdoors when possible, diligently washing hands especially before and after eating, and continuing to wear a mask if you’re unvaccinated.

In observance of the holiday weekend, there are no mobile vaccination clinics scheduled from Friday, July, 2 through Monday, July 5. The vaccination clinics at the Northwest and Southside Health Centers will also be closed Saturday, July 3 through Monday, July 5.

Additionally, COVID-19 testing at the Northwest Health Center, Southside Health Center, and American Family Field will be closed through Monday, July 5, and Milwaukee Health Department offices will be closed on Monday, July 5. All regular services, vaccinations, and testing will resume as normal on Tuesday, July 6.
