Dane County is locked down as of today. Indoor gatherings of any number of people are prohibited unless you live with them; outdoor gatherings are limited to no more than 10 people, and then only if you observe distancing and wear masks.

The Wisconsin Department of Administration extended restrictions for government workers until April 12, 2021: all meetings, conferences, trainings, basically all get-togethers are prohibited, and everyone must telecommute if at all possible.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported another record number of new COVID cases today: 7,989, the highest number of new cases on any day in Wisconsin. That’s not too far off from the average number of daily positives, 6,564, which continues to trend upwards (5,984 last week, 4,839 the week before).

The daily number of hospitalizations and deaths was not a record but continues to trend upward. The average number of hospitalizations per day jumped to 227.6 (was 202.9 last week, 182.4 the week before), and the average number of deaths per day is up to 48 (was 43 last week, 37 the week before).

And Governor Tony Evers extended the mask mandate. The legislature continues to block him from doing anything more, and sits on its hands rather than pass any bill that addresses the crisis.

Wisconsin, you’re disappointing the hell out of me. We were doing so well. What the fuck?

Well this is not good …

DHS reported 1,547 positives cases in Wisconsin today. Almost one-third of those (482) were in Dane County, and 395 of the Dane County positives came from the UW-Madison. Open the university, Tommy Thompson said. Great idea, Tommy. Nice going. Good job.

(The tip of today’s spike is only at 190 because the chart is based on a 7-day rolling average. It’ll be much higher tomorrow. Stay tuned.)

So much for the theory that if you don’t test as much, you don’t get so many new cases. New cases per day in Dane County and in Wisconsin take a massive jump while testing remains flat or decreases.

No one in the legislature has submitted a proposed rule, leaving the ship of state rudderless.
