Record High COVID-19 Cases Reported In WI Saturday, FDL Records 7th Death

Wisconsin recorded its highest one-day total of confirmed COVID-19 cases on Saturday, with a total of 1,165 new cases being reported. That marked a positive case count of 8.9%, with 13,162 test results reported by the Department of Health Services. Wisconsin’s seven-day average when it comes to positive tests now sits at 6.1%. 

Wisconsin is also approaching 60,000 confirmed cases in the state, with roughly 16% of those cases remaining active. As of Sunday, Fond du Lac County remained in the “high” category when it comes to new cases per 100,000 residents. Also included in that list are Sheboygan, Dodge Outagamie, Washington and Winnebago Counties, among a host of others. The FDL County Health Department website is also reporting a seventh death related to COVID-19. 

And while testing numbers continue to rise, it would be a welcome relief to see those numbers remain high, but the amount of positive cases drop off greatly. Until that happens, life won’t return to normal anytime soon. And whatever we thought “normal” was prior to March, may not be the new “normal” we see when all is said and done.
