Kenosha County COVID-19 update Jan. 20, 2022: 31,329 positives

/Kenosha County Division of Health

Note: The following statement from Jan. 14 relates to a change in how the state is reporting COVID-19 data: “The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has updated the Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS) to allow positive COVID-19 test results to be automatically imported into the system. This change is intended to support the efforts of local and tribal health departments (LTHDs) to manage the large influx of positive tests resulting from the ongoing surge driven by the highly contagious Omicron variant. As a result of this new auto-import process, DHS expects COVID-19 data to be temporarily elevated over the next few days while this process occurs and back-logged cases are brought into the live system. This change will help DHS provide the most accurate and up-to-date data moving forward.”

Note: All numbers are cumulative since data started being reported in early 2020, unless otherwise noted. — DH
