An additional 18 Northwestern Wisconsin residents tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported Monday, June 7.

They were reported as follows: six in Douglas County; four in Sawyer County; three in Bayfield County; two in Taylor and Washburn counties; and one in Rusk County. No new cases were reported in Ashland, Iron and Price counties. Burnett County's confirmed case total was reduced by one. Because of a reporting error on the DHS website, it's unclear how many infections were reported over the weekend and how many were reported prior to Friday, June 4.

Statewide, an additional 270 cases were reported through Monday, DHS said, bringing the total to 611,000.

The seven-day average of positive COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin continued to drop over the weekend. On Monday, the figure was 133. The seven-day average of positive cases measures the average number of new cases per day over the previous week. An overall decrease in the seven-day average of positive cases indicates the number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the state is also going down, according to DHS.

The number of negative tests in the state was 2,955,614 Monday, an increase of 5,204 since Friday.

DHS added 91 people who had been reported as hospitalized because of the virus since Friday, bringing the total to 32,954 Monday. However, only one person was hospitalized in the state over the weekend; the other 90 were first reported as hospitalized prior to Friday.

Monday's update also showed that 98% of the people who have tested positive for the virus have recovered. That means 1%, or 3,655 cases, are currently active.

DHS also reports that 5,260,696 doses of vaccine have been administered by Monday with 2,823,834 Wisconsin residents, 48.5% of the population, receiving at least one dose of vaccine, and 2,504,163 people completing the vaccine series.
