DHS launches new online data tool
DHS says its new data dashboard will help Wisconsinites effectively respond to covid-19
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - As we move through the reopening process, state health officials are launching a new tool.
DHS says its new data dashboard will help Wisconsinites effectively respond to covid-19. The dashboard consists of a color-coded map and tables that show the activity level of the virus in different parts of the state.
"Just as we have used data to drive our decisions at the state level we want to make sure local leaders, businesses, and individual Wisconsinites have the tools they need to make decisions in their communities," said DHS Secretary-designee Andrea Palm.
In the coming weeks, the dashboard will have information on disease surveillance, health care capacity, and public health response.
DHS continues to advise against travel between different areas of the state.
