Data Notes for the Week of June 2
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 page). The data below are from May 16 to May 29.
During this period, there was an average of 19 cases per day, which is the lowest we’ve had since our June 22, 2020 Data Snapshot!
Cases decreased during this 14-day period. We also have a low percent positivity of 1.1%. This decrease is likely not due to low testing numbers—we are averaging 1,673 tests per day. Over the past four weeks, cases have decreased among ages 30-49 and remained stable among all other age groups. There was an average of less than one case per day among ages 70+, and 1.5 cases per day among ages 0-7 during this 14-day period.
Two in three Dane County residents (66.5%) have at least one dose of vaccine.
Nearly 58% of residents have completed their vaccine series. Youth ages 12-15 became eligible about three weeks ago and are just now starting to get second doses. 76.7% of the eligible population (ages 12+) have received at least one dose of vaccine, and 66.8% of the eligible population 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 June 29, 2021.
For the first time since we began tracking case clusters, there were no cases linked to childcare facilities during this 14-day period!
For more information on clusters, see page 5 of the Snapshot. Vaccines have been effective in reducing cases among both people who have been vaccinated and the children in their lives who are not yet able to be vaccinated.
In addition to the mass vaccination site at Alliant Energy Center, we are staffing several pop-up clinics throughout the county. See our map for currently scheduled clinics. Would your business, workplace, or organization like to host a vaccination clinic? Let’s talk!
