10/26 UPDATE:Due to the recent Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS) upgrade and a statewide outage by the Wisconsin State Lab of Hygiene Electronic Lab Reporting which has resulted in a large backlog of processing positive test results, confirmed case and testing data continues to be impacted throughout the state. This business process statewide bottleneck will affect Waukesha County’s timely work in disease investigation, data reporting, and the 7-day averages and 14-day trend lines reflected on the dashboard. Waukesha County continues to prioritize this work and will post any additional updates as they become available. We apologize for this delay.
10/20 UPDATE: Due to the recent Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS) upgrade, some confirmed cases from the period of 10/16-10/18 are still being processed. This will impact Waukesha County’s data, and as a result, the dashboard will not reflect any data on those days that WEDSS was offline and will instead reflect artificially high data during the period of 10/19-10/23. Looking at the 7-day average will represent the most accurate picture of positive cases during this period.
10/19 UPDATE: Due to the limited availability of data as a result of the recent Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS) upgrade, Waukesha County’s COVID-19 dashboard will be updated on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
