NBC15 reports that the latest Department of Health Services figures show more than three-quarters of all residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Dane County health officials noted cases are rising rapidly, but remain lower than other parts of the state, crediting both the mask mandate and the county's high vaccination rate.
