City of Milwaukee Weekly COVID-19 Update
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.”
