Preliminary unemployment claims are rising very fast in Wisconsin due to coronavirus pandemic.
In the latest numbers per day from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, there are more than 45,000 new claims since Sunday.
These are preliminary numbers and are subject to change.
The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) launched a new webpage that displays preliminary numbers related to unemployment claims received by DWD's Unemployment Insurance Division (UI). Information can be viewed by visiting the Unemployment Claims Data page. The preliminary numbers will be updated daily.
The DWD encourages people to file for unemployment benefits online. For more information on how to file a claim for unemployment benefits, click here.
