MADISON, Wis. (AP) — More than 27% of Wisconsin residents have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine but state health officials are raising concerns about a new spike in positive cases, including variants.
Officials on Thursday renewed cautions about traveling during spring break season and dropping other safeguards that slow the spread of COVID-19.
Over the past seven days, the average number of new cases in Wisconsin was 439 and the percentage of positive tests was 2.5%.
That is up from 2% two weeks ago.
There are now 69 detected cases of the more contagious B117 variant first identified in England, up from 55 last week.
