Data Notes for the Week of July 1
Posted on Thursday, Jul. 1, 2021 at 4:12 pm
If you’re new to the data snapshot, we publish a weekly summary of the status for each of our metrics (you can find past issues on our data and dashboard page). The data below are from June 14 – June 27.
Cases were stable during this 14-day period with an average of 7 cases per day.
We had a low percent positivity of 0.5% and conducted an average of 1,246 tests per day. Hospitalizations decreased, and it’s been more than five weeks since we’ve had a death due to COVID.
Over the past four weeks, cases have decreased among ages 60-69 and remained stable among all other age groups. There was an average of less than one case per day among ages 50+ and among youth ages 0-17 during this 14-day period.
79.5% of the eligible population (ages 12+) have received at least one dose of vaccine.
68.8% of all Dane County residents have received at least one dose of vaccine and 64.8% have completed the vaccine series.
At our current pace, we could expect 80% of the eligible (12+) Dane County population to have at least one dose of vaccine by July 11, 2021.
We are seeing lower vaccination rates in areas of outlying municipalities in Dane County and in some pockets of Madison, Fitchburg, and Sun Prairie.
Our mobile vaccination team works with partners in these communities to assess ways we and other vaccinators can reach Dane County residents to offer vaccination and address people’s questions and concerns. See page three of the Snapshot for more details.
We are monitoring for the Delta variant of concern.
We, along with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, are monitoring for the Delta variant of concern. At this time, we do not believe Delta is dominant in Dane County yet. The most effective way to protect yourself and our community from being impacted by this variant it to get vaccinated. See our website for locations on where to get vaccinated.
