The rate of positive COVID-19 cases keeps growing in Wisconsin.

The Department of Health Services Friday reported that five-point-six percent - or 520 out of nine-thousand-127 tests - were positive. That rate was four-point-one on Thursday and four-point-three percent Wednesday, and reflects a trend that is worrying public health officials. In several Wisconsin counties, a majority of new cases are among those ages 20 to 29. While no additional deaths were reported Friday, there were 25 more hospitalizations.
