(WAOW) — Wisconsin is adding 709 COVID-19 cases along with 4,029 new negative test results, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS).

This brings the total of confirmed cases in the state to 589,213. Of those, DHS considers 9,195 as still being active.

The slight decline in classes compared to the rest of the week also drops the seven-day-average for new case reports. On Friday the average by almost 50 to 754 from the day before.

DHS is also reporting five deaths, bringing the total of those who have died from the virus in the state to 6,703.

As of Tuesday, a total of 3,617,906 vaccines have been administered throughout Wisconsin.

DHS also reported 69 people were newly hospitalized.

As of Thursday afternoon, 293 COVID-19 patients were being treated in Wisconsin hospitals, down 24 from the day prior.

Of those, 76 are in the ICU, up five from the day before, according to the Wisconsin Hospital Association.

So far, as of Thursday, 38 percent of Wisconsinites have gotten at least one dose of the vaccine, and 25.2 percent of the state has completed the vaccine series.

Vaccination numbers can change on a rolling basis as the state gets more data each day.

DHS has a county-level dashboard to assess the COVID-19 activity level in counties and Healthcare Emergency Readiness Coalition regions that measure what DHS calls the burden in each county. View the dashboard HERE.
