COVID-19 In Waukesha County: What you Need to Know

Hello! How are you doing? I haven’t been in a car for over two weeks at the time of writing this post. My family has been practicing social distancing as best as able. For others it’s not so easy and many are wondering what COVID-19 is like here directly in our backyards and in our communities. Luckily the Waukesha County Public Health does a great job of keeping the current statistics up to date. 

The Safer at Home Order is no longer in effect in Waukesha County.
Covid-19 is still in our communities.

COVID-19 In Waukesha County:
What You need to know

To stay in the know be sure to bookmark this page from the Waukesha County Public Health Departmant. The COVID-19 Dashboard for Waukesha County displays information through infographs to best relate to the changing information as it comes. There are confirmed cases by municipality, recovered cases, and cases by age group. 

A bit obvious is that most cases are located in more populated areas. Waukesha, Menomonee Falls, and the eastern border of Waukesha County (that meets Milwaukee County) is where the most cases are found compared with the western side of the county. 

The weather is {hopefully} getting better as we move farther into spring and closer to summer. The Waukesha County Parks system parks are OPEN. Most State Parks are back open again after a brief shut down around the original publish date. If you find yourself needing to connect with nature and one of these beautiful parks, please follow the rules so these parks can stay open and beautiful. 

In the past month, (March 13 through April 13), Waukesha County has gone from 1 confirmed case to 221. Continue your social distancing and basic hygiene efforts to slow the rise of the cases. Together, we can do this!

As people start heading back out into the community (in May), please be sure to follow all safety guidelines and precautions and try to limit outings if possible to heavily attended attractions. 

Be sure to read our interview with Dr. Michelle Morgan, a ProHealth Care family medicine doctor. She answers many questions and provides guidance for families here in Waukesha County.
