MILWAUKEE COUNTY — Early data suggests some new COVID-19 cases are linked to those who voted in the Wisconsin election on April 7.
Milwaukee Health Commissioner Jeanette Kowalik said it appears seven people contracted COVID-19 through election-related activities. That includes showing up to vote at one of the five polling places in the City of Milwaukee, or they worked at one of the polling sites.
