The Wisconsin Department of Health Services may recommend extending the state's 'Safer at Home' order.

The department is monitoring whether there's a spike in the number of COVID-19 patients due to in-person voting for Tuesday's Spring Election.

DHS Secretary-designee Andrea Palm said in a conference call Wednesday that the department is also reviewing data on confirmed patients, and comparing it to that of neighboring states that did not have Spring Elections,

DHS officials added in the conference call that current models predict that Wisconsin's peak of cases is anywhere from three to six weeks away.

Wisconsin's Safer at Home order is set to expire on April 24, 2020.
