* You can find cases and deaths for all 72 counties in Wisconsin on the DHS County Data Website. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Wisconsin Hospital Association issue updates Monday through Friday. The Michigan Department of Health updates the information on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Michigan did not update the numbers on Dec.31 due to the holidays.

** Cases and deaths are from state COVID-19 reports, which may differ from local health department numbers. The Wisconsin DHS reports cases of all health departments within a county, including tribal, municipal, and county health departments; county websites cannot. Additionally, public health departments update their data at different times, while DHS freezes the numbers it receives at the same time each day to compile the afternoon report.
